WineScores' Review

Carved, silky, racy.
From the Meyer family's estate vineyard on the Naramata Bench, this year's Tribute Chardonnay pays homage to Donovan Tildesley--a blind Paralympic swimmer.
It seems Meyer can do no wrong; a focus on what they do well and making premium wines. This version is toasty and assertive; notes of oyster shell and matchstick, grilled lemons and brown spices with creamed butter. The palate is equally confident; racy acidity, spice and citrus flavours are carved free with a creamy edge. It is slick and silky with a toasted coriander flavoured finish.
Aged in French oak (22% new). The wine was left "sur lees" for 11 months without battonage and went through natural malolactic fermentation. The wine is unfined and coarsely filtered.

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”.
