WineScores' Review

Delightful, zesty, crunchy.
Delightfully fresh and zesty, floral with crunchy stone fruit and lime aromas that lead to an off-dry palate that is on-point, fruit forward, tangy and with lively acidity to keep it feeling dry on the tongue.
According to Fitzpatrick: every four or five years, Ehrenfelser likes to take a rest. We're not sure why, maybe it just likes to relax and unwind a bit?
But about twice a decade, it produces a short crop. The long warm fall helped its flavours develop nicely, and our signature early evening shade kept the acidity brisk and refreshing. But that also means there’s just less Ehrenfelser to go around. The 2019 Ehrenfelser is made from a blend of estate grown fruit and Naramata Bench.

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”.
