WineScores' Review

Jammy, luscious, mouthfilling.
Lunessence launched in 2014 after taking over a property in Summerland and with them brought a philosophy of biodynamic farming. Ergo, there are no pesticides or herbicides used in their vineyards, and they have a focus on natural wines.

This vintage, harvested from a vineyard in Oliver and aged 12 months in French and Hungarian oak, is much less savoury than last.
Luscious sarsaparilla, ripe purple berries and grapey aromas are layered with the perfume of wildflowers, cedar chips and chocolate. Generous fruit and supple weight, it's a mouthfilling wine balanced with freshness culminating in a smooth cocoa finish.

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”.
