WineScores' Review

Juicy, sweet, fun.
Lake Country's pioneering Gray Monk (now owned by Andrew Peller) has recently released their 2021 Rose, which as usual is blends Rotberger and Gamay. It is a dusty salmon pink hue with notes of maraschino cherries, strawberry jellies, orange blossoms and earth. The palate is sweet and juicy with notes of candied pear, orange segments, sweet cherries and honey with a hint of cedar. Approachable and fun.
Suggested pairings include: Margherita pizza, Tapas, Greek salads, crab cakes; baked salmon, gazpacho, cheese and charcuterie, pork tenderloin with rhubarb sauce, chicken tagine, turkey with cranberry sauce or feta bruschetta.

Recommended Pairings
Patio Sippers, Seafood/Fish, White Meat Chicken/Pork

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”.
