WineScores' Review

Fresh, lively, balanced.

An extremely well balanced and attractively priced Chardonnay. On the nose you'll delve into extremely fresh aromas of honeysuckle, sweet golden fruits, fresh butter, brown spices, citrus and vanilla. The palate is smoky with buttery flavours, marzipan, crunchy yellow pears and zest of citrus. Solid style and weight, great value and lively character.
Pair: Roast chicken, almond crusted halibut, corn chowder or creamy pastas.

Second review: November 2016
As noted in previous reviews, as well as the one attached, this is always a fantastic value Chardonnay, It offers both restraint and fruit, brightness and structure. It is nutty and spicy, toasted and buttery with lemon and pineapple, golden apples and a rich and creamy palate with a spicy finish.
Pair: Roast chicken, almond crusted halibut, corn chowder or 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
