WineScores' Review

Classic, fresh, quaffable.
With a big rebranding thanks to the uber-popularity of rose wines globally, Mateus (pronounced mat-ee-us) has schmancied up their label and stretched their classic cantil bottle shape for the first time in 75 years. Several years ago, the shook up brand somewhat by moving to a clear bottle from the classic green, which really showed off the bright salmon-pink hue. Now they've taken it a step further, yet the bouncy, fruity, spritzy, and not cloying, stalwart juice remains. At under $10 a bottle in our market, and low alcohol (11%) it's a pretty solid deal.

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”.
