WineScores' Review

Racy, pristine, fantastic. Spearhead's winery and home vineyard (the Gentleman Farmer Vineyard) are located in South East Kelowna but they also have the Coyote Vineyard in West Kelowna and the Golden Retreat Vineyard near Summerland. Made by Grant Stanley who heads up the winemaking this again fantastic Riesling has a vibrant nose of peach and green apple, lime and honeysuckle. To echo the nose, peach green apple and citrus flavours dominate the palate. It is pristine and juicy with a slickish texture.
The finish is lip-smacking.
Pair: white meats, mixed greens, creamy sauces or seafood.



 
Recommended Pairings
Eat your Greens, Seafood/Shellfish, Patio Sippers, White Meat Chicken/Pork

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.
