WineScores' Review

Crushable, juicy, levity.
A lovely, bouncy Pinot Noir from the enthusiastic and recently dynamic Rheinhessen, the Thorle is an organic wine grown in limestone and loess soils. Expect a ruby red wine with purple glints and juicy grapey notes along with raspberry, blueberry and sweet spices.The palate is exuberant as well, like an adult juice box it's crush-able and has a lovely roundness on the palate. A slight chill on this wine is mandatory, it'll just make it even tastier. Approachable but not simple, with levity and a decent mouthful of red fruit flavour; the tannins are chalky.

Recommended Pairings
Good First Impressions, Seafood/Fish, White Meat Chicken/Pork, Cheese - Soft/Creamy

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”.
