WineScores' Review

Singular, slick, levity.
Made from Furmint (known primarily for producing the historical sweet Tokaji dessert wines from northeast Hungary), blended with 13% Muskotaly grapes, this dry (szaraz) table wine comes from the Dereszla Winery, home to one of the oldest cellars in the Tokaj region.
Despite having no oak contact, it has a creaminess and a character best expressed with grilled lemons and yellow apples and Bosc pears, honey and dried wildflowers with mineral undertones. It has a slick texture and bouncy stone fruit and lemongrass flavours on the palate.
Levity and length; wonderfully unique with impressive value.

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”.
