A lovely, medium-bodied Niagara white wine blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Floral, aromatic and off-dry, this is a terrific aperitif or companion to fresh seafood. Finishes with apple blossom. Pair with medium curries and spices as well. Great price.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Featherstone's Four Feathers blends four cool climate white grapes: Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and a splash of Gewürztraminer, in one fragrant, creamy, and refreshing wine that's both super versatile and super value priced. Pale straw in colour, it's loaded with sweet orchard and tropical fruits, fragrant floral blossom, and sweet wildflower honey notes. Its creamy texture and subtle sweetness makes it ideally suited for enjoying with spicy Asian cuisine, smoky BBQ fare, creamy seafood pasta dishes, and a wide range of appetizers. At $14.95 this wine offers terrific value! Enjoy 2018-2020. Tasted October 2018. 90+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Featherstone's Four Feathers 2017 is a great value, dry and medium-bodied, zesty white wine blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. The husband-and-wife team behind Featherstone takes responsibility for their vines from the ground to the air. To limit grape damage from hungry birds, such as starlings, co-owner Louise Engel flies a Harris's hawk in the vineyard while Dave Johnson tends to the vines. Pair with mild vegetable curries. - 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.
