WineScores' Review

Fragrant, woven, rustic.
Terra Ventoux wines are produced from soils within vineyards located on 5 different Geological terroirs, these terroirs receive more than 2700 hours of sunlight per year. The richness of the soils, within the 600-hectare vineyard creates exceptional flavour profiles within the Terra Ventoux wines. Their grapes grown on all 5 of these terroirs (included in this wine) are: limestone plateau, white clay with limestone pebbles, sandy hills with red clay, iron rich red soils and pebbly alluvium silt deposits.
It is made from Grenache and Syrah vines more than 30 years old.
Expect woven aromas of plums and red cherries, ssweet spice and cocoa, dried violets, anise and garrigue. It has a rustic lilt with bittersweet chocolate and espresso flavours. A definitive food wine, pair with grilled eggplant, aged goat cheese, roasted meats and hearty soups.

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”.
