WineScores' Review

Exciting, powerful, profound.
Blue Mountain is setting incredibly high standards in the Canadian traditional method sparkling wine category. Their family estate is well established, their conscientious viticulture and winemaking practices come from a solid understanding of what works for their site, and their fervent belief in who they are (as an estate) comes through in each and every wine they make.
Undeniably exciting, that's what is in this bottle. Made entirely from selected estate Chardonnay it is aged, after bottle fermentation, for five-and-a-half years on lees to add complexity. It is a profound fizz, offering aromas of warm apple turnovers, browned butter, roasted nuts, charred orange peel, and savoury spice, underscored by coriander seed. The mousse has wonderful levity; it is both powerful and complex with grilled lemons, bread dough and golden fruits. The finish is wonderfully long and mouthwatering.
As reviewed in Vines Magazine, winter 2016.
Second review, Nov 2017: Just as precise, mouth-filling and nervy as it was when I tasted it last year. And, just as profound with that overarching acidity I love in this wine.

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”.
