WineScores' Review

Glorious, silky, delicious.
A pale blushing apricot with a rose gold shimmer, this exquisite pink is made from Chardonnay (56%) and Gewurztraminer (42%) with a splash of Merlot for colour. The grapes came from Bartier's estate Cerquira Vineyard, comprised mostly granite glacial till with a sandy loam topsoil and from their Summerland Vineyard, which contains silt topsoil on mainly granite gravel. The wine was aged on lees in stainless steel for 4.5 months. It's a dry rose, weighing in a 2.7g/L residual.
Always one of my favourites, the 2020 features aromas of rose water and orange blossoms, peach stone and rhubarb with just a hint of strawberry. It's a joyous wine, juicy, slick and substantial; the finish is racy and trails candied citrus peel flavours.

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”.
