WineScores' Review

Slick, unique, zesty
Tasted bottle No.575 of 600.
This organic and vegan Roussanne was harvested from the estate's Coyote Block (planted in 2009) and was naturally barrel fermented and aged 9 months.
It has a rich golden hue and notes of toasted hazelnut and lanolin, beeswax, yellow apples, star fruit and lemon curd. The palate is quite fleshy and has a creamy edge with flavours of golden fruits, charred nuts, salted preserved lemon and a zesty finish. It's vaguely reminiscent of a fino en rama sherry.
Very unique, a wine for food; think oily fish, white meats and soft cheeses.

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”.
