WineScores' Review

Juicy, light, delightful.
Made from a blend of red grapes this new low alcohol version of Poplar Grove's popular pink weighs in at only 85 calories (per 5oz) and 8% alcohol.
TBH I've struggled mightily with low alcohol wines but this one I'm not mad at, not at all. I can see sipping away at this all afternoon in the sun and feeling better than I would with a wine almost at double the ABV.
It is a medium salmony-pink with joyful notes of orange pekoe tea and watermelon rind, peach stone, strawberry and faint cedar aromas. The palate is light, juicy and bone-dry with tart red berries, red apple skin, rhubarb stalk, cranberry and wild herbal flavours. Quaffable.

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”.
