WineScores' Review

Furst is considered the nobility of German Pinot Noir.
Weingut Rudolf Furst has a history as winegrowers back to 1638. When Paul and Monika Furst took over the winery in 1979, they built today’s estate buildings on the outskirts of the village. They began with only 1.5 hectares of vineyard but have gradually expanded the vineyard area to the current 21 hectares, 60% of which is planted to Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir).
A mid-toned rusty ruby shade the Furst shows wonderful classic pinosity; woven notes of cherry and red current, dried violets and lilac rest atop hints of elastic band and cola spices. It's silky and elegant; there's nice restraint here and plenty of stony minerality layered with sour cherry flavours. Great acidity, great bones.

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”.
