WineScores' Review

Textured, creamy, smoked.
This wine was naturally fermented and then aged concrete tanks for 8 months. Hickory smoked apples, creamed pears, wildflower honey and wild mushroom aromas translate to a palate of stony minerality, grilled citrus, bruised apples and tealeaf. Creamy and textured.
Second Review: November 2021
Creamed corn and pears, quince and golden delicious apples, muddled lime and bread dough aromas lead to a leesy palate. Creamy yellow fruit, dandelion tea, wet stone and tangy lemon flavours are expressed on the palate. A slickly textured wine with bold acidity.

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”.
