WineScores' Review

Value, fresh, fruity.
Amazing value from South Africa's signature white grape--slap this one in the fresh and fruity category!
Named for the wild olive trees (sometimes thousands of years old) that dot the landscape in prime grape growing regions of the Western Cape, this buy-by-the-case white delves into aromas of honey and white peaches, melon, white blossoms and hints of lychee. Slick in texture with notable concentration it has loads of yellow fruit on the palate; it's an extremely easy quaff with a fresh drier finish.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
