WineScores' Review

Precise, racy, classic.
Blue Mountain has long been known for their estate grown, traditional method sparkling wines and the value in each bottle--they're widely regarded for making exceptional fizz.
The 2019 (disgorged August 2021 then left in bottle to rest) is a blend of Pinot Noir 65% and Chardonnay 35%; the grapes were whole cluster pressed and each variety fermented separately. After fermentation the components were blended and inoculated with yeast and fermented a second time in bottle. Post secondary fermentation the wine was aged in bottle sur lie for 24 months.
Classic notes of yellow apples and tart red berries, crushed stone and delicate citrusy aromas. It's a delightful fizz, precise and racy with crunchy tree fruit and berry flavours leading to a peach stone finish. Strong mineral undertones here and a long palate cleansing finish.

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”.
