WineScores' Review

Gutsy, rich, creamy.
What used to be known as Oldfield Series, is now Oldfield Reserve. This Chardy was fermented in French oak using natural yeasts then matured in oak barrels for an additional 18 months.
Off the charts; a patisserie of liquid creme brulee drizzled in hazelnuts, golden apple turnovers, honeysuckle and matchstick aromas. It is creamy and packs a wallop of flavour in rich vanilla liqueur, melty caramels, sweet grilled pineapple and spiced vanilla lingering on the finish.
A gutsy and unapologetic wine.

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”.
