WineScores' Review

Sweet, approachable, delicious
Corcelettes is a boutique winery settled on 150 acres of the Similkameen Valley's Upper Bench in Keremeos and is owned by the Baessler family.
The 2019 Merlot was aged in 1000L French oak vats to not overwhelm its Similkameen profile. The nose suggests sweet cherry and red plum aromas mixed with baking spices, purple flowers, vanilla and licorice. It is a approachable and fresh wine with sweet red fruit to echo the nose, along with orange peel, raspberry tea and spiced cocoa. Fine tannins are nicely managed.
Honest and delicious.

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”.
