WineScores' Review

Classic, elegant, silky.
Another outstanding Pinot from MFVs, this one is made from grapes grown on the estate’s home McLean Creek Road vineyard in Okanagan Falls, which was originally planted in 1994. The site is comprised of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and some Gewurztraminer, grown on sandy/gravel loams.
It was aged for 11 months in French oak barrels (25% new); natural malolactic fermentation occurred in late spring. In keeping with the estate's hands-off approach in the cellar to allow the true expression of terroir to shine through, the wine is unfined and unfiltered.
Earthy notes of beet greens, leather, forest floor and rhubarb are woven with red cherry, cranberry, star anise. vanilla and fine brown spices. It's a silky wine with classic pinosity, high-toned expressive red fruit and spice flavours. It is elegant yet juicy, supple and persistent. An absolutely charming Pinot.

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”.
