WineScores' Review

Refreshing, consistent, zesty. The Heiss family was the first to plant Pinot Gris in Canada and it continues to be a signature wine for that winery, now owned by Andrew Peller. In fact, the name of this 30-year-old winery comes from the Austrian and Hungarian name for the variety, Grauar Monch, which translates to Gray Monk.
Expect honeysuckle and a fruit-cup of peach jellies, warm pears, yellow apples and grapefruit. It's an orchard in a glass with its fruity, citrus palate. Off-dry and supple on the tongue it has a lively zesty finish.
Pair: toasted chicken salad sandwich, spicy crab cakes, coconut curry, mushroom ravioli or grilled white fish.

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”.
