WineScores' Review

Outstanding, precise, exceptional.
There's little surprise with Germany's massive thirst for fizz, they would be making outstanding versions of their own. The Riesling for this traditional method sparkling is planted on sandstone limestone and soils; the wine went through secondary fermentation in bottle and spent 20 months on lees before being disgorged.
On par with quality Champagne, but with all the attitude of a Riesling, it's an exceptional bottle.
Golden glinted with persistent fine bubbles, the nose offers unripe crunchy peach notes layered with green apple turnovers, creamy lemon butter and yeasty undertones. Dry and nervy, complex and precise, it explodes in the mouth and blankets the palate with pristine citrus and snappy stone fruit flavours. The finish is long and fine.

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”.
