WineScores' Review

A fantastic repeat of Harry McWatters' Chardonnay, which comes from the Sundial Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench.
Expect aromas of creamy pears and fragrant tangerines, fresh butter, pineapple and honeysuckle layered with fine spice. It has a silky palate and creamy weight with loads of sweet buttery flavours, brown spice and caramel hints. Deftly handled oak will please both camps (lovers of full-bodied, oaked Chardonnay and those who prefer more restraint) and it has a lengthy, elegant finish.
Recommended pairings: Saffron mussels in cream and Chardonnay broth, grilled Dungeness crab and brie brioche, roast chicken and creamy pastas.

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”.
