WineScores' Review

Pleasing, slick, creamy.
This estate grown Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc was tank and barrel fermented and partially aged in French oak on lees for nine-months.
It has lovely yellow gold glints and suggests toasted spice and grilled quince, preserved lemon peel and honey then opens up in the glass with warm yellow apples. It's nicely weighted on the tongue with flavours to mimic the nose. Lovely weight and concentration, it has a slick texture and plenty of zest and spice on the finish; a wine with a lot going on.

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”.
