WineScores' Review

VALUE, approachable, juicy.
Made in the wild west known as Swartland, this red blend (with a pinch of Viognier) offers delightful aromas of warm cherries, vanilla, chocolate, baking spices and ground espresso beans. It is as fresh as it is supple; juicy red fruits and mocha linger on the palate. An easy wine, medium-bodied and approachable.
Second Review: September 10, 2019
Awesome value, fleshy and very approachable, this plush red doles out smoked plums and mulberry, vanilla, spice, licorice and chocolate aromas. It is supple yet freshly balanced and entirely tasty. A great BBQ wine.

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”.
