WineScores' Review

Pretty, juicy, dry.
Located on the Naramata Bench, Domaine Roche is owned by Penelope and Dylan Roche, and while they are established in the Okanagan Valley, they have roots in Bordeaux and Burgundy.
The estate vines (farmed organically) are located on the southern edge of the Naramata Bench, overlooking the city of Penticton and Okanagan Lake, and are rooted in a mix of silt, organic matter and gravel.
The vineyard adjoins the winery and includes Schonberger, Zweigelt, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (the latter two were planted in the summer of 2017).
A light watermelon pink, this 2020 rose is 92% Zweigelt, 8% Schonberger and suggests pretty notes of orange marmalade and sweet strawberries rolled in smoked spices, cedar and wildflowers. The entry is juicy, grows in power mid-palate; tangy blood oranges and red berry flavours meld with fine spice and grapefruit pith, notes which trail across the finish. Dry with a generous weight--a perfect food wine for fish, summer salads, charcuterie and cheese.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
