WineScores' Review

Iconic, focus, levity.
Riesling geeks unite! Tantalus has so many devoted fans, their Rieslings are their flagship and this old vines version is an iconic BC wine.
Made from estate grown, sustainably farmed and low cropped 35+ year old vines, this apogee wine has incredible focus and stamina.
Notes of lemon wax, crunchy green apples, slate and apricot lollies, honey and spring blossoms lead to an equally racy and poised palate. It has amazing levity, unapologetic citrus and provocative textural chewiness on the 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”.
