WineScores' Review

Powerful, elegant, complete.
A jewel in Alsace's crown, Domaine Zind Humbrecht is run by winemaker Olivier Humbrecht and his wife Margaret.
The Clos Hauserer is a 1.2hec vineyard planted solely to Riesling, it produces Margaret Humbrecht's favourite wines, so Olivier ensures it's quality year-after-year.
Golden yellow, it doles out earthy notes of beeswax and wet stones, preserved lemons and scalded wild honey with undertones of peach stone and bread dough. It is creamy and yet taut, thought-provoking and complete with power and elegance. Almost endless on the palate it trails, lemon custard and wet stone flavours.

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”.
