WineScores' Review

Expressive, approachable, juicy.
The Fitzpatrick Family wines come from the historic Greata Ranch vineyard nestled between Summerland and Peachland along HWY 97. Owned by the Fitzpatrick family (formerly of CedarCreek) they focus on aromatic whites, Pinot Noir and traditionally made sparkling wines. The Elusive doles out expressive aromas of sweet purple berries, dried violets, cedar, chocolate coated hazelnuts, vanilla and star anise. It's a supple Pinot with flamboyant blueberry and raspberry flavours layered with baking spice candied violets and tealeaf. Approachable and juicy.

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”.
