WineScores' Review

Salty, briny, acquired.
Not matter what anyone says, fino is an acquired taste; one I happen to love.
This one is classic: pale yellow in colour with notes of tart green apples, sourdough starter, saffron dust and olive brine. The palate mimics the nose it is briny and concentrated, salty and nutty. A lengthy wine that's best with salted almonds and olives or bread and soft cheese and sardines.

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”.
