WineScores' Review

Fresh, toasted, zesty.
The family heirloom known as Covert Farms, is a 650-acre multi-functional estate that was established in 1959 at McIntyre Bluff.
This is the first ever Chardonnay produced by Covert; the vines, planted in 2007 are rooted in estate glaciofluvial sedimentary soils and was fermented in stainless (75%) and French oak (25%) barrels.Expect aromas of warm pineapples drizzled in honey, warm lemon meringue pie, apple pie slices and vague nutty undertones. On the palate flavours of charred lemon peel, grilled yellow apples, brown spice and roasted hazelnut dominate. It's fresh and zesty with a fleshy weight.

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”.
