WineScores' Review

Festive, expressive, juicy.
Gray Monk makes this Brut from Pinot Blamc, Riesling and Chardonnay. Sweet golden pears and honey, yellow plums and talc with nutty and leesy undertones, it is just off-dry and has candied citrus peel and tree fruit flavours. Expect festive bubbles, a bright character and creamy edge. A lively sparkling for the holidays or any day of the year.
Pair: salmon, soft and mild cheeses, turkey, mildly spicy dishes or most appetizers.
Second review: November 2021
Grilled lemon and wet stone, hay and wildflowers, honey and yellow plum aromas, lead to a palate that is dry with nice complexity. It has a snappy, crunchy palate and long leesy finish. Nice classic styling.

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”.
