WineScores' Review

Precise, persistent, elegat.
Blue Mountain is a family-owned and operated winery locaed in the sub-GI of Okanagan Falls. They've been grape growers on their stunning estate site overlooking Vaseaux Lake for decades (since '71) and followed up making wine under the Blue Mountain label. Sparkling wine is not the only thing they do, but they are most well-known for it and have set the sparkling bar high in Canada.
This sparkling pink (a blend of Pinot Noir 70% and 30% Chardonnay) was aged on its lees in bottle for 30 months before being disgorged in August 2021 with an added dosage of 10g/L. It was aged an additional year in bottle.
A pale salmon-hued brut that delivers notes of crushed stone, wild red berries, tangerine, peach pit and dragon fruit with leesy/yeasty undertones. Expect a taut palate with bracing acidity and plenty of tangy citrus and red berry flavours. Elegant, precise and focused.

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”.
