WineScores' Review

Covert Farms is a 650-acre, four-generations, family-owned organic farm and winery estate located just north of Oliver.
The Amicitia sparkling Zin (a rare grape to use for bubbly) is made in a natural method (method ancestrale), whereby it is put through natural fermentation, bottled and left to ferment with no intervention. It is unfiltered and topped with a crown cap.
It's a cloudy wine, pretty peachy-blush with rose gold glints and notes of clementines, strawberries, honey and tealeaf. It's lively and honest, crisp and punchy, A good example of this style of wine; it's clean, with a mouthwatering finish.

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.
