WineScores' Review

Racy, slick, pristine.
A rarity in the Okanagan, this 100% Semillon comes from Hester Creek estate's Block 12 on the Golden Mile Bench. The vines were planted in '97/'98 and the wine was fermented in stainless steel and aged on less for four months before bottling.
I applaud the racy nose of honeysuckle and lime, lively orchard fruit aromas, orange blossoms, banana peel and star fruit aromas, which lead to a expressive and off dry palate. Melon, banana, honey and tangerine flavours dominate the palate, it has excellent concentration and a zesty 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”.
