WineScores' Review

This fairtrade red is named six hats for Citrusdal Wines' belief that terroir is more than just soil and climate, but people too. The six hats stand for sustainability (at the core) but also partnership, change, dignity, potential and equity - the focus of fairtrade products.
It leads with Maraschino cherries and pepper then rolls into roasted baking spice atop savoury, meaty aromas. The palate is savoury and spicy; a mix of red and black fruit is rounded out with peppery spices, bittersweet cocoa and roasted coffee flavours. Fresh and fairly smooth and good with game meats or pretty much anything beefy and grilled.

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”.
