WineScores' Review

Concentrated, oily, golden.
I'm pleased with this new vintage; this tasty Chenin comes from 40-year-old vines planted on sandy granite soils in Swartland.
Expect honey and orchard fruits, vanilla, spring blossoms and marmalade aromas. Weighty and concentrated with an oily texture and flavours of golden fruits and spice; it has balance and great structure thanks to some phenolic texture.
A great food wine for fish, white meats and smoked cheeses.

Recommended Pairings
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”.
