WineScores' Review

Golden, harmonious, fresh.

The White Gold is a reserve tier Chardonnay made from Fort Berens' estate Dry Creek vineyard in Lillooet; it was fermented and aged in French oak barrels .
A rich yellow hue, it delivers notes of sweet butter and roasted hazelnuts, spiced honey, golden pineapples, yellow plum and banana. Sweet pineapples and apple, spice and buttered nut flavours line the palate. Nicely touched with oak and the finish trails bright juicy yellow fruits. Harmonious and very enjoyable.

Pair: roast chicken, polenta with brown sage butter, cornbread, buttered popcorn, and smoked mozzarella.

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”.
