WineScores' Review

Delicate, charming, zippy.
This utterly charming fresh white is a perfect everyday sipper and patio wine and it pairs admirably with food. It's made from 50% Moscatel along with Arinto and Vital that are harvested early to maintain their bright acidity.
Crunchy apples and lime, peach stone, mineral and powdery floral aromas lead to a spritzy palate that is light and lifted. Zippy and dry it is entirely quaffable (and low alcohol at 9.5%) but will pair with all sorts of fish, cut through creamy sauces or soft cheeses, pate or charcuterie.

Recommended Pairings
Seafood/Shellfish, Patio Sippers, Seafood/Fish, White Meat Chicken/Pork, Cheese - Soft/Creamy, Creamy Dishes, 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”.
