WineScores' Review

Purity, freshness, exotic.
From under the umbrella of Jackson Family Wines, this fragrant Penner~Ash Viognier comes from the single Crater View Vineyard and was aged primarily in stainless steel with 8% in concrete egg.
Expect lemon curds and vanilla, stone fruits, honey, exotic spices, orange blossoms and a hint of marzipan. While ripe and weighty it also shows admirable purity. Spicy with ripe stone fruits, beeswax and resin flavours it has power and freshness and a lingering finish.

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”.
