WineScores' Review

Classic, expressive, pristine.
This classic Gew is hand harvested from chalky-clay and limestone soils in the AOC Alsace. It was aged on fine less for four months before an additional 5 months in vats prior to bottling.
Tasting this wine brings me back to why I fell in love with Gewurztraminer; it's expressiveness and purity. I find these qualities lacking in many I come across these days, so I don't reach for it often.
Here you have nougat drizzled in honey, lychee and rose petals, orange blossoms and exotic spice aromas. Rich but not fat, oily but not unctuous; concentrated and pristine and an alluring lingering earthy character.
Seriously good.

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”.
