2018 Canadian Oak Chardonnay VQA
Grown, Produced and Bottled by Featherstone
Oh Canada! Proud to be local, this wine is made exclusively from Niagara grapes, fermented by ‘wild’ yeasts indigenous to our vineyard, and matured in barrels made from nearby oak trees. This dry wine follows lush apple and pear aromas with poised, creamy maple – butter and vanilla flavours. A clean sweep of acid keeps it fresh. Delicious on its own and also a great addition to your harvest table this fall with your favorite roast turkey recipe!
Rick Van Sickle – 91 points
” A specialty at Featherstone with the fruit aged in 100% Canadian oak, with 10% of the barrels new oak and the rest older barrels for 10 months. It shows a nice golden glow in the glass with a nose of pear, apple, spice, cream and butterscotch. It’s creamy and rich on the palate with poached pear, baked apple, a touch of lemon zest, spicy oak accents, good texture and verve through the finish.”
