WineScores' Review

Pleasing, generous, juicy.
A boutique winery located in the famed Coonawarra, in the Limestone Coast Wine Zone of South Australia, Hollick produces wines only from estate-grown fruit. Coonawarra is recognized as one of Australia's finest wine regions and is particularly known for Cabernet Sauvignon, which responds exceptionally well in its red terra rossa soils over limestone. Pure underground water and a long cool ripening season for the grapes produce wines of elegance and longevity.
The Bard displays juicy mulberry and cassis, eucalyptus, cola spices and faint notes of leather and graphite. It has a supple weight and generous purple berries and spice flavours. Wonderful levity having a few years under its belt - a wine that is all in check and a pleasure to drink.

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”.
