WineScores' Review

New, fresh, pristine.
Clos du Soleil is an organic winery located in the Similkameen Valley, they make minimal intervention wines with elegance. The Winemaker's Series consist of wines made to highlight varieties outside of Clos du Soleil's normal portfolio.
This new La Cote Vineyard Chardonnay is best described as fresh. It was fermented in oak and stainless steel; it was aged on lees for 8 months with occasional stirring and was filtered just prior to bottling.
It has a pale yellow-green tinge and pristine aromas of golden fruits, orange blossoms, toasted hazelnuts, lemon balm and faint spice. It's a pretty wine with a juicy character and flavours of spiced yellow apples, warm nuts, peaches and orange segments. Expect lovely suppleness, freshness and length.

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.
