WineScores' Review

Slick, potent, woven
The Heritage Heroes are a series of hand-made gourmet wines named for some of the folks who have shaped Nederburg and its history as one of South Africa's oldest and most awarded wineries. This one is named for founder Philippus Wolvaart who bought the farm in 1791.
The grapes come from Swartland and Paarl planted 37 & 38 years ago, which means the fall under South Africa's OVP (old vine project) vines; portions were fermented in older oak, clay amphora and in stainless steel.
Notes of honey and grilled lemon, pine wax and straw, fennel, yellow apples, peach stone and flint lead to a lively palate. It's wonderfully woven and the flavours echo its aromas. Notable depth and potency it has a slick texture and trails citrus and dried pineapple flavours across the 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”.
