Featherstone 2021 Chardonnay is a bone-dry, full-bodied, zesty Chardonnay aged in Canadian oak barrels made from oak of trees grown along the Grand River in Ontario. Grapes are hand-harvested and fermented with native wild yeasts. Look for nutty, ripe gold apple, yellow plum, piney and smoky aromas and flavours on this zesty Chard. Chill and enjoy with juicy pork chops from the grill.

Chardonnay food pairings: Asian dishes, crab cakes, pan-fried cod, baked maple ham.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Full bodied, great texture, and pleasantly refreshing. Featherstone's Canadian Oak Chardonnay incorporates local oak barrels to make this a 100% local (Ontario, Canada) terroir wine from vineyard to cellar. Expressive, refreshing, and balanced with apple, pineapple, melon, buttered croissant, and hints of vanilla bean on the nose and palate. The most elegant and impressive vintage of this wine I recall tasting in the last five years. Tasted September 2023. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Featherstone 2021 Chardonnay is a bone-dry, full-bodied and zesty vegan-friendly Chardonnay aged in Canadian oak barrels produced from trees grown along the Grand River in Ontario. Grapes are hand-harvested and wild-fermented, The wine is fresh with ripe apple, pear, vanilla and nutty, spicy flavours creamy and brilliant on the palate. Good now but will continue to evolve in bottle. - Community Wine Reviews
