WineScores' Review

Fizzy, fresh, tasty.
The XC fizz was made from grapes grown in OCP's Summerland and Oliver vineyards. Its second (bubble inducing) fermentation took place in the winery's state-of-the-art charmat tanks, which are designed to lie on their sides, exactly like traditionally-made sparkling wine is aged, but in its own bottle.
A pale salmony-pink it delivers juicy aromas of summer berries and peach fuzz, bread dough and orange blossoms. It's fizzy and fresh with a creamy texture carved off by racy acidity. Sweet red delicious apples and tangerine spritz flavours linger on the palate. Approachable, pristine and very tasty.
Made mostly from: Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

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”.
