WineScores' Review

Slick, tangy, juicy.
Lunessence is a sustainable estate winery located in Summerland and this single vineyard Blanc de Noirs is a blend of Syrah (14%) Merlot (60%) and Pinot Noir (26%). The grapes were foot trodden and the juice was left in contact with skins for one hours to allow for this pale shade. It was then aged in a mix of neutral French oak and stainless steel on lees for five months.
A pretty pale salmony-pink with cranberry and strawberry, honeysuckle and orange peel, spice and cedar with herbal undertones. It's a dry version, tart red fruits and blood orange with mineral flecks. It is slick with nice concentration.

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”.
