Natalie's Score: 87/100

Featherstone 2016 Chardonnay is smoky on the nose from oak aging for 12 months in Canadian oak barrels. This is a creamy, buttery Chardonnay from the Niagara Peninsula with ripe pear, peach, vanilla and citrus zest flavours on the palate. Canadian oak is actually the same as American. The difference is terroir and climate for the trees.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Featherstone 2016 Chardonnay is smoky on the nose from oak aging for 12 months in Canadian oak barrels. This is a creamy, butter, medium-bodied, 100% Chardonnay from the Niagara Peninsula, Ontario wine region with ripe pear, peach, vanilla and citrus zest on the palate all wrapped up in balanced acidity. Canadian oak is actually the same as American (it is aaaaalll quercus alba/white oak). The difference is terroir and climate for the trees. Canadian oak is more subtle and firm than, say, Missouri white oak which is so rich it is better suited for whiskey. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
