WineScores' Review

Located on the Black Sage in Oliver, Bartier Bros. make honest, classic wines of quality.
Piquette has historically been the winemaker and vineyard crew's wine. It's a simple wine made from a second pressing of grapes after the initial, intended wine. It has lower sugar and therefore alcohol (4.2%) and BB adds some carbonation to their version to keep it interesting and refreshing. It's also a way for a winery to bring in extra income from what would otherwise be deemed leftovers; crucial in times like these.
As I mention above this is a simple wine, no need to get into fancy talk about it. On both the rose and the white (both come in cans) the nose is more distinguished than the palate.
Notes of lemon peel, melon, pear and pomelo lead to a very light-bodied palate with mouthwatering acidity.

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”.
