WineScores' Review

Supple, approachable, value.
Oxford Landing, a brand made by Australia's oldest family owned winery, Yalumba, has just had a makeover with sharp new packaging.
The Oxford Landing wines comes from South Australia's fertile red Riverland soils along the Murray River, 300-hectares are broken down into 150 two-hectare blocks so each can be treated uniquely. While production is large the wines are made with a "small-scale" approach according to OL, including wild fermentation using indigenous vineyard yeasts and minimal handling.
Vanilla liqueur and shaved cedar, chocolate and licorice, cherry and black berry aromas are layered with clove, star anise and hints of apricots and concord grapes. The palate is supple with sweet black fruits, spice and cocoa. It's fresh and approachable with tealeaf flavours trailing across the finish.
An everyday value red for hearty stews, bean dishes, and meats (plant-based and not).

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”.
