WineScores' Review

Toasted. complex, zesty.
The 2018 Gran Reserva Pere Ventura brut is a blend of 60% Xarel-lo and 40% Chardonnay grown on estate sites in the upper and central Penedes, in the heart of Catalonia. Part of the Chardonnay was fermented in oak and barrel aged with lees stirring for five months, lending it such toastiness.
It shows some age, and has notable yeasty/grilled brioche aromas woven with toasted nuts and spices, applesauce and grilled lemons. Bone dry and complex, it has very ripe yellow fruit flavours alongside melon rind and orange slices and charred honey. The finish is zesty the mouse is creamy.

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”.
