WineScores' Review

Elegant, refined, fragrant.
Lunessence was born in Summerland in 2014 when its owners took over a property in Summerland and named the estate Lunessence: Luna=Moon + Essence.
They believe in sustainable viticulture, balance and harmony in their vineyards, and achieved organic certification in 2020. Unfined and unfiltered this wine spent 8 months in French oak (20% new).
Expect juicy cherry aromas are woven with a splash of raspberry, violets, licorice root, sweet brown spice and pipe tobacco in this fragrant Pinot Noir. Silky and elegant, it has notable freshness and a seamless and expressive palate. Finely hewn, it is both delicate and structured; the finish trails with lingering spice.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
