WineScores' Review

Fresh, finesse, balance.
The reserve Chardonnay from T7 is 100% barrel fermented and aged, from grapes harvested from the Becker Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, in Oliver and went through spontaneous fermentation. The fermentation was in 100% French oak barrels, of which 20% were new. The barrels were stirred for four weeks, to increase lees contact and add roundness to the palate and underwent partial malolactic fermentation.
Notes of yellow apples are woven with toast and grilled lemons, wet stone, roasted hazelnuts and spice. The palate mimics the freshness of the nose; citrus, toasted spice and hazelnut flavours dominate. Nice finesse and balance here, not overbearing and oak laden.
Pair: lobster, cedar planked salmon, creamy chicken dishes, creamy fettucini, grilled white fish, breaded and fried oysters, roast chicken or squash ravioli.

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”.
