WineScores' Review

Fresh, zesty, lengthy.
Blasted Church was established in Okanagan falls 20 years ago. It was named for a mining camp church which was torn down (with the help of explosives) and rehomed to the Falls in 1929. The labels tell many colourful stories.
Harvested from the estate Redbrick Vineyard on the Osoyoos East Bench, and Crespo Vineyard on the Osoyoos West Bench this 100% Viognier was fermented in oak (25%) and stainless steel. It delivers freshness overall; stone fruits and lemon-lime, honeysuckle and faint spiced biscuit aromas. It's dry and juicy, not flabby as Viognier can get when overripe, has a zesty character overall with yellow fruits and hints of spice. Good length here.

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”.
