WineScores' Review

Zesty, classic, snappy.
Giesen is co-owned by brothers Marcel, Alex ad Theo Giesen who own 13 vineyards in Marlborough spread across the Southern Valleys, Wairau and Lower Wairau, of those 11% are certified organic.
In this estate Savvy, elderflower, peach and passionfruit aromas are woven with snappy notes of green apple, gooseberry and nettle. It has an earthier grounded palate with primary lime and grapefruit flavours. Tangy and zesty, it shows classic Marlborough character.

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”.
