WineScores' Review

Fine, persistent, racy.
A 100% Chardonnay (Blanc de Blanc) comes from the Meyer Family Vineyard's McLean Creek Road Vineyard in Okanagan Falls. The vines are rooted in alluvial soils with glacial deposits (a mix of gravel and sandy loam) with a mostly southern aspect on asteep slope. The 2014 vintage base wine was fermented in stainless steel and aged for 2 years. The base wine went through a full natural malo-lactic fermentation and was then bottled under crown cap where it carried out its secondary fermentation in the summer of 2016. The bottles were then aged on lees for 28 months and were disgorged early spring 2019 with zero dosage. The bubbly is unfined and unfiltered.
A golden-yellow hue with a super fine bead, this blanc de blanc leads with modelling clay, oyster shell and bread dough aromas that glide into peach stone, Jonagold applesauce, star fruit, fennel fronds and acacia. Bone dry with racy acidity it is both creamy and austere; a very persistent finish trails more mineral and citrus flavours.

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”.
