WineScores' Review

Vibrant, fruity, tangy.
Regional wine pioneer Fort Berens, is located at the base of the Fraser Canyon, near Lillooet where they make mostly estate-only wines.
The 2020 is made entirely from Lillooet Pinot Noir (with splashes of Merlot and Cab Franc)and is a brilliant watermelon pink with notes of strawberry muddled with blood orange and rhubarb atop salt-rubbed herbs, crystalized honey and whiffs of faint white pepper. Tart red fruits and citrus pith, spice and tealeaf flavours line the palate.
Fresh and vibrant overall, almost a hint of spritz on the tongue, and a suggestion of umami on the finish.

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.
