WineScores' Review

Savoury, silky, classic.
Located above Vaseaux Lake in Okanagan Falls, Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars was established five decades ago.
Their wines have a very classic, honest character and they are stay true to their roots.
The 2022 Gamay (it's been four years since I've tasted this wine) was hand harvested and had an 18 day maceration. It was aged in neutral oak barrels for 12 months then bottled and cellared another six months.
Notes of beet greens and tealeaf are layered with small red berries, earth, fine spices and charred licorice. It's a fresh wine, classic, silky and fresh with savoury undertoness. Stylish and medium-bodied, it has a juicy finish.
Pair: cedar planked salmon, pork tenderloin with berry sauces, grilled chicken, chorizo or soft, washed rind cheeses.

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”.
