WineScores' Review

Concentrated, lengthy, fleshy.
This consistently impressive Chenin Blanc, made from high altitude, gnarled bush vines, was aged in oak barrels.
A brilliant yellow wine, potent with roasted hazelnuts and grilled lemons, yellow apples and quince, star fruit and honey with buttered toast. The palate is creamy and rich with impressive concentration; expect fleshy fruit and a supple weight. Spicy and zesty, long and lengthy.
Pair: roast chicken or turkey, smoked cheeses and creamy pastas.

Pairs Great with Gone Crackers Roasted Shallot & Herb

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”.
