Featherstone 2017 Chardonnay is a smoky on the nose, dry and medium-bodied with ripe pear, apple pie, vanilla, lemon cream on the palate with a hint of smoke from 12 months of oak aging in Canadian oak barrels. The oak for these barrels are sourced from trees grown along the Grand River in Ontario. Pair with a roast chicken dinner.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crafted from Niagara grapes, fermented using indigenous yeasts from the vineyard and matured in barrels made from Ontario oak. Shows lovely apple, pear and vanilla on the nose, with a creamy palate that gives hints of maple. Good acidity balances the fruit. Enjoy with grilled scallops, roast poultry or cheddar cheese. Delicate and delicious. Local talent! Tasted March 2019
Ripe pear, apple, vanilla, lemon pudding and buttery flavours creamy on the palate all wrapped up in a smoky veil from 12 months of oak aging, in Canadian oak barrels, on Featherstone's 2017 Chardonnay from the Niagara Peninsula, Ontario wine region. Yes, Canadian oak barrels with the oak sourced from trees grown along the Grand River in Ontario. Pair this all-Canadian zesty white with grilled pork chops. - 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.

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.
