WineScores' Review

New, complex, tangy.
Made in West Kelowna with Pinot Noir from the Tucker Vineyard, this traditional method sparkling was fermented in stainless and then aged in stainless and oak for 7 months before bottling and being put through a secondary fermentation in each bottle. Tener Hope also makes wines (Roussanne and a Syrah) with grapes sourced from vineyards in the Columbia Valley, in Washington State.
Golden in colour it offers crackling aromas of cranberry tea and peach stone, yellow apples and warm honey with buttery hazelnut croissant. It is juicy, has lovely complexity and is both tangy and creamy. It is dry and lengthy with persistent bubbles.

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”.
