WineScores' Review

Value, snappy, quaffable.
Serious value and seriously tasty, this snappy 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, Kono and Aronui wines, 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 2019 Kono is as lively as always; peach and crunchy green apples aromas are layered with elderflower, lime and snap peas. Quaffable and tangy and flavoured with gooseberry, citrus and passionfruit, this is a lip-smacking white that will put a smile on your face.

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”.
