WineScores' Review

Restrained, muted, fresh.
The 2019 vintage of this wine is numbed by oak. From 33-year-old hand harvested vines, 100% went through native yeast fermentation, which was fermented in stainless (20%) and the rest oak of differing sizes. The oak fermented portion also saw 5 months in barrel stirred sur-lie before being bottled in April 2020.
Muted yellow fruits, grilled lemon and toasted spice is influenced by oak aromas. Likewise the palate, while fresh is restrained with oak flavours clinging to the palate and the finish exhibits a textural phenolic character.
Personally not a fan of this style.

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”.
