2019 Sauvignon Blanc VQA
Grown, Produced and Bottled by Featherstone
Bright and clean, our Sauvignon Blanc is as fresh as dew on grass on a summer morning. It has the typical accents of gooseberry and lemongrass, rounded out with delicate peach and pear, followed by a playfully lime zestiness. Oysters, chicken, or light pastas are good companions to this refreshing wine.
“A brilliant buy with its bright scents of ripe yellow plum and juicy kiwi fruit. This wine is dry and refreshing. It rushes over the palate lemon-lime-gooseberry flavour that persists on the finish making it an ideal partner for many dishes from fried chicken to stir-fries, pesto pastas to crumbled cheese and nut topped salads.” Carolyn Evans-Hammond: 91 points; April 30, 2020
“Gooseberry aromas waft easily from the glass with a supporting cast of grassy notes and ripe pit fruit—peach, yellow plum and hints of mango. It envelops the palate with a balanced-on-a-pin, creamy-smooth mouthful of delectable flavour with quince jelly, tangy lemon curd and wisps of saline minerality to the fore. This is medium bodied with persistent purity of fruit and deft balance extending through the crisp and refreshing finish. Pour on its own or alongside fish, seafood, sushi or crumbled chèvre over a bed of olive-oiled arugula.” Vic Harradine: 92 points; May 10, 2020
