WineScores' Review

Spiced, fresh, zesty.
The McWatters Collection (founded by the late Harry McWatters) falls under the Time Family of Wines umbrella and is made at the Chronos Winery (formerly TIME Winery) in downtown Penticton. There are now four wines in this collection, including this Chardonnay.
Roasted chestnut and grilled lemon, brown spices, yellow apples, buttered popcorn and coriander aromas dominate the nose. The palate is an echo of toasted spice, white pepper and lemony flavours. It has good brightness and a zesty, slight salty finish.
Pair: saffron mussels in cream and Chardonnay broth, grilled Dungeness crab and brie brioche, roast chicken, corn chowder 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”.
