Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Golden in colour with aromas of granny smith apple, butter, pear and spice. It is medium bodied with crisp acidity and has flavours of green apple, caramel and lemon zest that leads into a creamy green apple finish. This is will pair well with poultry and pork, I enjoyed it with turkey for thanksgiving dinner. Tasted on October 12, 2020.
Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine showcases David Johnson’s creativity regarding local ingredients. Among other things, the 2019 Ontario Wine Awards winemaker of the year matured this wine in oak harvested from Ontario forests. This “act locally” decision contributed style to this medium bodied chardonnay. From a family operated winery, it featured a generous profile of baked white orchard fruit with woodsy, butterscotch and caramel notes filling in the background. Enjoy.

Featherstone 2018 Chardonnay is smoky on the nose with juicy apple, pear and vanilla aromas, creamy with ripe pear, vanilla and buttery lemon flavours on the palate. So good. Aged in Canadian oak barrels sourced from trees grown along the Grand River in Ontario. Winemaker, David Johnson was named 2019 Winemaker of the Year at the Ontario Wine Awards. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
