WineScores' Review

Expressive, juicy, unexpected.
Summerhill's first release of its blanc de Franc (made from a great harvest of Cabernet Franc) fizz has already received plenty of kudos. It was aged on lees in bottle for three years to add complexity.
The colour is coppery salmon and it offers sweet aromas of tangerine, peach stone, red currants, honey, Gala apples and violets. The palate however is dry. It is juicy and laden with berry flavours, fruit and nut bread and bold citrus.
Fresh and unique, expressive and unexpected.

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”.
