WineScores' Review

Fragrant, juicy, engaging.
Based in Baden, Germany, Shelter Winery is comprised of husband and wife team Hans-Bert Espe and Silke Wolf; the wine, Lovely Lilly is named after their dog. This estate is farming organically and native yeasts are used for fermentation in open top vessels. The winery started up in an old Canadian Air Force hangar; the Shelter building.
It's a fragrant one--cherry and raspberry, cedar and dried flowers, cranberry and sweet spice aromas dominate the nose. It's dry and juicy with high-toned red berry flavours woven with tealeaf and spice. It's an engaging wine with good classic pinosity.

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”.
