WineScores' Review

Consistent, ripe, fresh.
I've long been a fan of South Africa's Chenin Blancs - they come in many guises and the Spier is a great starting point - it's equally affordable and tasty.
I've been reviewing this wine for a decade and consistency is key. Golden in colour it offers aromas of yellow apples, honey, grapefruit and exotic flowers. It is concentrated and juicy, has a kiss of sweetness and slick creamy texture, there is a presence of oak and spice carved out with bright lemony flavours.
Pair: Fish, spicy cuisines, white meats, summer salads and soft cheeses.

Pairs Great with Gone Crackers Roasted Shallot & Herb
Recommended Pairings
Eat your Greens, Seafood/Fish, White Meat Chicken/Pork, Bargain Bottles , GONE CRACKERS, Appetizers

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”.
