WineScores' Review

Charming, snappy, lip-smacking.
Charming and tasty, this zingy Savvy is made by New Zealand's first Maori owned winery, Tohu, which was established in 1998. In Maori, Tohu means sign or signature. In all, the company produces not only Tohu and Kono wines (made from vines in Nelson and Marlborough), but farms Kono mussels and makes fruit bars and Tutu cider. They hold firm to the core value that love for the land and respect for the sea must be ever present; to prosper, the environment must be well and healthy, full of life and vitality.
The 2021 is as bright as always. Peaches, passionfruit, lime, snappy green apples and ederflower aromas lead to an energetic and juicy Savvy with oodles of sweet crunchy fruit. It's a joyful little quaffer that's easy to drink and has a lip-smacking 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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
