WineScores' Review

Elegant, profound,complex.
Located in the Okanagan Falls sub-GI, Meyer Family Vineyards specializes in premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from estate vineyards under the winemaking guidance of Chris Carson.
The 2018 Micro Cuvee Chardonnay is selected from MFV's Old Main Road vineyard on the Naramata Bench. A long, cool fermentation took place in stainless steel vessels where it remained for most of the ferment. The must was then transferred to 100% French oak (33% new) and left sur lie for 11 months without battonage; natural malolactic fermentation occurred in late spring. For this Micro Cuvee they selected the most outstanding barrels and in keeping with their philosophy to maintain a hands-off approach in the cellar (allowing for true expression of terroir), the wine is unfined and unfiltered.
Warm buttered biscuits, apple turnovers, honeysuckle, toasted spice and vanilla liqueur aromas flow seamlessly onto a plush yet lively palate. Creamy and complex with woven fruit, citrus, spice and nutty flavours this wine is elegant, delicious and frankly, profound.

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”.
