WineScores' Review

Fresh, lofty, juicy.
The family owned De Bortoli was established in 1928 by Vittorio De Bortoli, four years after he left Treviso, Italy and settled in Griffith, in the center of New South Wales.
This Shiraz comes from Heathcote, and for every 6 bottles sold, De Bortoli plants a tree.
Mulberry, cocoa, bruised cherry, brown spices and leather, coffee, boxwood and cedar aromas lead to a fresh, medium-bodied wine. Lofty red berries, baking spices, vanilla, mocha and finely ground pepper flavours roll across the tongue. Very approachable and quaffable.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper

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”.
