WineScores' Review

Golden, nutty, fresh.
This fresher style of Chardonnay from Kendall~Jackson is made from 100% Estate grown Chardonnay from vineyards in Monterey, Santa Barbara and Mendocino County, it has been fermented 50/50 in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels with partial secondary malolactic fermentation.
Expect good Chardonnay character with golden fruits, lemons, nutty aromas with baking bread and smoke. The palate is mouthwatering; sweet peach puree, honey, tangerine and pineapple with vanilla flavours dominate. Very good weight with a creamy edge and a lengthy spicy and zesty finish.

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”.
