WineScores' Review

Unique, aromatic, candied.
Made from Rotberger, grown by the Drought Family, whose motto is Semper Sitiens (which means, always thirsty), the 2020 version of this pink is a very pale, almost onionskin, shade. While the hue has softened, the aromas have not. Bitter orange and toasted spices, vanilla, charred rhubarb, burnt honey, strawberry jelly and undertones of wild herbs/sage are expressed on the nose. In the mouth, candied peaches, herbal tea and red berry coulis flavours dominate.
It has a unique sweet and savoury character, which is awkward.

*shade of image does not represent the true hue of this wine.

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.
