WineScores' Review

Fresh, concentrated, racy.
Kitsch Wines is a Kelowna winery, established by born and raised Okanagan residents, Trent and Ria Kitsch. Winemaker Graham Pierce (formerly Black HIlls and Time Winery) joined just last year.
These Riesling grapes come from the sustainably farmed south-west facing, clay-rich soils of the Kitsch family vineyard.
Similar to the Father's Block Riesling this one delivers bold aromas of marmalade and young quince, crunchy apricots, lime and pomelo. It has notable concentration and loads of zesty citrus flavours wrapped in stone fruits and candle wax. The acidity is racy and it has a textured, pithy and mouthwatering 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”.
