Jubilant, fizzy, pretty.
Tasted bottle No.1123.
Covert Farms is a 650-acre, four-generations, family-owned organic farm and winery estate located just north of Oliver.
This 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.
As one would expect, it's a cloudy wine that's a pretty peachy-blush with rose gold glints. It expresses tangy notes of rhubarb and charred orange peel alongside tart red berries, vanilla and star anise. It has a delicate fizz and clean palate with vague flavours of melon, red berries and peach. A fresh and jubilant bubbly.
