WineScores' Review

Fresh, generous, lively.
Named for the Stewart family matriarch, the Rosemary’s Block wine was harvested from the Upper Boucherie Bench in West Kelowna. After being fermented in oak and going through a full malolactic secondary fermentation, it was aged on its lees in new and old French barrels and stirred every three weeks to add richness and complexity.
The wine is golden in colour and has a lively lemony nose layered with yellow apples, brown spice and nuts. Generous yet fresh boasting toast and citrus, and yellow and white tree fruit flavours.

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”.
