WineScores' Review

Organic, zesty, delicate.
An organic Blanc de Noir, made from Pinot Noir, which was whole bunch pressed to concrete tank for natural fermentation. Later that fall it went through a secondary fermentation and was aged sur lie. After 20 months the wine was disgorged and finished with no dosage, which resulted in this dry bubbly. A pale straw hue, it offers aromas of melon rind and apricot stone, wild honey, yellow apple sauce and bread dough. It has distinct salinity and minerality, akin to licking a stone. Zesty additional flavours of lemon peek and starfruit are wrapped up in a creamy, yeasty palate with delicate bubbles.

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”.
