WineScores' Review

Pleasing, juicy, snappy
While it was surprising to see Spanish Cava king Feixenet making northern Italy's sparkling darling Prosecco, it makes sense. The popularity of Prosecco in recent years has been hard to ignore, and while cava is a more complex, labour intensive and over all less expensive bubbly, the Prosecco numbers don't lie.
My first taste was a pleasing one, knowing bubbly has obviously helped in producing a solid product. A pale golden shade it has a smaller bead than you'll typically see for this type of charmat wine; the aromas are lemony with crisp tree fruits, apple peel and acacia blossoms. It feels drier than many of its competitors but is considered extra-dry at 17g/L residual. Juicy and clean with snappy citrus flavours it's a nice addition to the rather busy category.

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”.
