WineScores' Review

Phenolic, citrus, mineral.
Grown in the Lazy River Vineyard in Cawston (Similkameen Valley GI) this wine went through spontaneous fermentation on skins in stainless steel tanks. The orange-y hue comes from the colourful Pinot Gris skins, but it may not be what you'd expect in this varietal.
It delivers orange pekoe tea and mineral, peach fuzz and cedar with marmalade aromas. It is phenolic and has hints of spice and nuts, with a hint of citrus and tealeaf on the palate as well. It has a one-dimensional and oxidized character. If you're a fan of orange wines this one will be up your alley.

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”.
