WineScores' Review


Golden, toasted, creamy.
This estate grown Chardonnay went through 100% malolactic fermentation and this vintage the nose offers notes of yellow apples, mountain stream, tangy lemon and caramel pralines. A creamy texture glides across the palate and bring with it yellow fruits, toasted spice, sweet vanilla and pithy lemon flavours, which trail across the finish. This vintage seems to pack more heat, but is labeled as 12.5%
Pair with grilled corn on the cob, rich creamy pastas or smoked gouda and pear grilled cheese sandwich.



 
Recommended Pairings
Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , White Meat Chicken/Pork, Creamy Dishes

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
