WineScores' Review

Toasted, creamy, tangy.
While nothing is truly far from the ocean in Chile, this wine comes from a vineyard in Limari (a notably cool-climate region gaining in popularity) and is made from the notably fruity Mendoza Chardonnay clone.
Browned butter and grilled lemons carry the nose and are lifted by Gala apples and vanilla with layers of toasted hazelnut, coriander seed, and bay leaf. The palate is supple and creamy with impressive intensity. Tropical fruit is carved through the flavour profile, along with tangy lemon and toasted nuts on the finish. Excellent posture, on-point acidity and notable length.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive

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”.
