WineScores' Review

Charming, tangy, crisp.
For the second year running this wine has fallen into my TOP 100.

It is a fresh white made from the Loureiro variety, which is classic to the Vinho Verde region of Portugal.
It offers a nose of honey/beeswax, white melon, lemon oil, golden apples undertones of mineral, lanolin and vague hints wildflowers. The palate is tangy and loaded with citrus and mineral with glimpses of white fruits. A clean, crisp wine, both straightfoward and focused.
Pair: fish, soft-medium cheeses and citrus and herb dressings.

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.

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 q
