WineScores' Review

Unique, tangy, explosive.
A historic estate and one of the 12 Australia's First Families of Wine, Tahbilk was established in 1860. It was a later purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925 and remains within the family.
The Marsanne is a special wine, it comes from (possibly) the odest Marsanne vines left in the world.
The 2008 is an exceptional price, especially as Semillon gets so much better with some age.
An intense nose, which is tart and tangy, offers pine resin, lemon oil, dried white flowers, bitter almond and beeswax. The palate echoes the nose with explosive citric flavours, honey and some herbal flavours culminating in fleur de sel. The finish is extensive.

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.

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
