WineScores' Review

Stylish, toasted, creamy.
This handpicked estate Chardy was fermented in tank (15%) and oak (85%) with different strains of yeast to add complexity; it went through partial mololactic fermentation and was aged 8-months in assorted oak barrels.
Spiced butter and lemon curd, toasted oak and vanilla aromas are layered with grilled golden apples, pineapple and musk melon. The palate is equally toasted and rich; butterscotch, vanilla and spiced nut flavours dominate. It has a creamy demeanor carved of by bright acidity.

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”.
