WineScores' Review

Aromatic, concentrated, floral.
Nestled along the Shuswap River in Enderby, north of Vernon, and far north of Kelowna, Waterside Winery was recently acquired by a family from Alberta.
This aromatic wine, is made from Ortega, a grape which originates in Germany and is a hybrid crossing of Siegerrebe with Muller-Thurgau. It has a naturally high sugar content and low acidity.
Wild flowers and stone fruits are layered with notes of honey. It's made in a drier style and has notable weight and concentration with some phenolic texture and a pithy 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”.
