WineScores' Review

Fragrant, fresh, spicy.
I love reds from Australia's cooler regions, and this Lodge Hill from Jim Barry in Clare is a great example. Made from the Lodge Hill Vineyard vines (planted in 1977) it's inky-purple in colour with expressive black raspberry and mulberry, violets. sarsaparilla and sweet mocha notes. Leaner and fresher than the nose would suggest, the palate offers wild purple berries and peppery spices are layered with flavours of toasted spice, espresso and earth.

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”.
