WineScores' Review

Racy, creamy, precise.
Township 7 was one of the first BC wineries to make a traditional method sparkling wine in 1999. After some sporadic years Seven Stars was reborn in 2015 under the guidance of winemaker and sparkling wine expert Mary McDermott.
Seven Stars is now its own brand and has five sparkling wines in the portfolio with plans to increase the offering to seven (stands to reason) in coming years; all are Seven Stars Club exclusives.
The 2019 Polaris, a blanc de blanc, is made entirely from Chardonnay (sourced from the Hidden Terrace Vineyard in Oliver and the estate vineyard in Naramata) was left en tirage for 21 months to add complexity.

Pale and brilliant with a fine strings of bubbles, it features restrained notes of toasted brioche, yellow apples, lemon and hazelnuts. It's a pristine wine, dry and focused with a creamy texture, fine bead and a long, racy finish. A classic blanc de blanc with notable precision.

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.
