WineDiva's Review

Value, fragrant, fresh.
Made in the Western Cape by Alsatian flying winemaker, Julien Schaal who produces wine twice a year--once in his home of Alsace and again in South Africa.
Chocolate cherries and vanilla, red plum and licorice with brown spices and sweet chocolaty undertones.
Chalky cocoa tannins rest on the palate along with red fruits, fresh earth and peppery spices. It has a modern/classic Shiraz character and notable acidity.
A perfect weekday red priced with value in mind.

Who is Wine Diva?
WineDiva is my alter ego. 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 my very serious passion for all things wine. It is my goal to make wine fun, to make this website subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs beware, this WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and making it her own! Care to join me?
