Featherstone's Black Sheep Riesling stands shoulder to shoulder (ear to ear) with the best of Niagara Rieslings. This is one of my favourite Niagara Rieslings: delightful every vintage. The 2014 vintage is no exceptional with lovely bright notes of lime blossom, lemon zest and flint. Pair with fresh seafood and vegetarian dishes. This Ontario white wine offers great refreshment in the glass. Featherstone's Black Sheep Riesling stands shoulder to shoulder (ear to ear) with the best of Niagara Rieslings. Mouth-watering juiciness with vibrant notes of tropical tree fruit. Off-dry and ready from a range of dishes from glazed ham to chutney.
Riesling food pairings: scallop ceviche, white fish with mango salsa, salt and pepper shrimp skewers.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A very fragrant nose with citrus lime, floral & minerality. A bright palate shows ripe peach, apricot, lime and subtle minerality. Very tasty; dry, mouth-watering acidity with long tart apricot/lime finish. Love it! Would be super with shellfish.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Gorgeous aromas of peach, pear, citrus - lime with a hint of flinty minerality and delicate white flower. Refreshing and dry on the palate offering flavors of pear, lime and ripe peach. The finish is long with fresh peach and lime showing through. This wine would pair beautifully with scallops, shrimp or ceviche. Tasted December 01, 2015 at the Canadian Tire Centre, Featherstone tasting.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A crisp Ontario Riesling with aromas of green apple, pear, peach, and a touch of petrol. The taste is pear, apple, and line. There's a crisp acidity and a long apple and lime finish. This is quite food friendly and was exceptional paired with a lemon chicken and pasta dish.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A lovely crisp and clean Riesling from Featherstone's Twenty Mile Bench vineyard in Vineland, Ontario. The nose shows ripe orchard fruit - apple, pear, with a hint of beeswax and fresh figs. Clean and refreshing, the palate bursts through with freshly picked macintosh apples, lime, and mandarin orange. A wonderful Riesling to enjoy with roasted pork and apple compote. Tasted September 2015. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
