WineScores' Review

Youthful, complex, textural.
Made in Summerland by winemaker Matt Dumayne at the Okanagan Crush Pad, Coolshanagh is named for a vineyard located just north of Naramata. A portion was fermented and aged in a concrete egg and the rest in new French oak puncheons, for 11 months. It was also lees stirred and bottled without fining or filtration.
Notes of roasted hazelnuts, bright lemon, toasted spice, golden apples and browned butter lead to a vibrant palate. Saline and lemons, toasted nuts and spice flavours are buoyed by lively acidity. Youthful and precise, it has a creamy edge and phenolic texture.
Until June 30, 2020, $10 per case of Coolshanagh sold will go the the BC Hospitality Foundation.

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”.
