WineScores' Review

Bright, creamy, balanced.
The grapes for this 2020 Chardonnay were sourced from Okanagan Falls then fermented mostly in oak and a small portion in concrete egg. It saw 9 months of ageing with lees stirring in 86% in barrel with 10% being in concrete egg and 4% in stainless steel.
Warm yellow apple sauce aromas are layered with hazelnuts, grilled lemon, bread dough and liquid honey. Sweet golden fruit, brown spice and vanilla flavours dominate the palate. It is slick and creamy with great balanced and deft use of oak--as seasoning rather than a main ingredient.

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”.
