WineScores' Review

Slick, creamy, fleshy.
The Hatfield's Fuse is an aromatic proprietary blend ( the XXXIX is Viognier, Chardonnay Musque, Semillon, Optima, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer), that I've not tasted since the 2016 vintage.
Creamy and very ripe yellow fruit flavours are layered with grilled lemon, leesy notes and coddled egg yolk and brulee. It has a similar over-ripe palate that is fleshy and off-dry. Slick in texture, it has concentration and a pithy and spicy finish. Seems cumbersome.
Pair: fish & chips, crab cakes or spicy noodle salads.

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”.
