WineScores' Review

Zesty, creamy, crunchy.
A classic Mosel Riesling, the Fish label is a consistently friendly white named for the fish that adorns the label. It was created by Vacouverite, Johanna Waldof, a friend of owner/winemaker Johannes Selbach's.
Notes of honey and green apples, peach, snappy lime and white blossoms lead to a zesty palate. It's off-dry as expected and riper than the 2020. It has more of a creaminess and on first taste the sweetness seems more pronounced this vintage. However, the next day I tasted it again and it seemed far more crunchy. Flavours of smoked stonefruit and stone lashed with lemon peel linger on the palate. The finish is lip=smacking
Pair: white meats, fresh veggie curries, Asian noodle dishes, hand-chipped fries dipped in chili aioli.

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”.
