WineScores' Review

Blushing, dry, fresh.
If you’ve ever been to South Africa (if not you should certainly plan to when travel is safe once more) then you will have seen the King Protea. A flowering plant, Protea Cynaroides is found in southern areas of South Africa and is the national flower of South Africa.
Protea wines, in their stunning abstract screen-printed bottles are brought to you by Anthony Rupert Wines. All offer incredible value; the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet are less that $15 in BC Liquor Stores.
Anthonij Rupert was founded on the L'Ormarins farm in Franschhoek, whose winemaking history dates back to the 17th century. Originally it was owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001. In 2003 it was taken over by his brother Johann who named it in his honour.. They now have a portfolio of farms: L'Ormarins in Franschhoek, Rooderust in Darling, Riebeeksrivier in the Swartland, and Altima in isolated Elandskloof.
Now, this charming 2019 blushing pink is included in lineup.
Made mostly from Mourvedre, it also combines Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz grown in the Swartland and in Darling. Notes of small red and black berries mingle with purple flowers, cedar and tangerine zest. It has an earthy character enhanced by citrus peel and berry fruit flavours atop savoury spice. Overall, good weight and freshness here, a solid everyday dry rose with decent persistence.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
