WineScores' Review

Spicy, textural exotic.
Ten percent of this Viognier was aged in French oak for three months to add complexity. It is golden in colour with aromas of pine resin and toasted lemons, peach crumble and tangerine oil, wild honey and mixed exotic spices. The entry is tangy; it has earthy flavours of wild mushroom and honey, which is lifted by tart citrus peel flavours. A textural component to the palate adds weight and it has a distinct savouriness.
Pair: Moroccan cuisine, food with exotic spice flavours, oily fish and stronger cheeses.

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”.
