WineScores' Review

Creamy, tropical, peachy. The McWatters White Meritage, under the Time Family of Wines made at the Chronos Winery (formerly TIME Winery) is 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon; a portion was oak fermented and the wine was stirred on lees for three weeks post ferment.
Chronos is named for the Greek primordial god of time, aptly, and under the McWatters (named after founder Harry McWatters) label there are three wines.
Expect notes of grilled white peaches, vanilla, toasted pecans, lemon meringue, honey, lanolin, elderflower and glazed pineapple aromas. It has a sweet tropical character layered with nuts and honey before culminating in vanilla liqueur flavours. Good freshness to balance its mild sweetness and a persistent finish overall.

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”.
