WineScores' Review

Slick, fresh, tangy.
A blended red rose, which was made by leaving pressed in contact with the skins for four hours, then cold settled and cool fermented to preserve its bright fruit flavours.
It has a light salmony hue and notes of smoked cherries, orange bitters, wild herbs, red currant and rhubarb, red apple skins and cedar. The texture is slick and it has distinct herbal grassy notes woven with tangy red berries, charred orange peel and spices. Good structure and weight here, a definitive food wine with white meats, charcuterie and cheese, salmon, ratatouille or duck.

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”.
