WineScores' Review

Outstanding, juicy, pretty.
This outstanding Riesling was harvested from the organically farmed (ecocert certified) Garnet Valley ranch Vineyard, planted in 2015. It was whole bunch pressed to stainless steel and went through a native yeast fermentation. It was aged for six months further in stainless steel.
Lovely precision and focus; lime and grapefruit, apricots and crunchy green apple aromas are rounded out with chamomile tea. It is juicy, has a silky texture and excellent persistence. The balance on this pretty wine is notable.

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”.
