WineScores' Review

New, unique, fresh.
From Patagonia's Familia Schroder, Alpataco's name is derived from the native thorny bush that prospers in Argentina's south.
It opens with a funky nose of wet paper then morphs into beet green and carrot tops, sweet spices and tangy red cherry, concord grapes and violets and a whiff of menthol. It is juicy with strong herbal flavours layered with sweet high-toned red fruit, leather and spice. Slick and elegant the finish is fresh and persistent; it saw zero oak.
Available in BCLS April 2021.

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”.
