WineScores' Review

Fun, foamy, fresh.
This methode champenoise sparkling is a fun pink sipper made from Granny Smith apples with a dosage of cassis - it's Elephant Island's version of the French aperitif, Kir Royal.
It has a pink cotton candy coloured foam and offers aromas of summer berries, blood orange and black currant jelly. It's considered brut but does have a kiss of sweetness, which is nicely managed with mouthwatering acidity to cleanse the palate.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
