Lovely and floral, Four Feathers is an off-dry, well-crafted white wine blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay wine grapes. Sweetness and vibrant acidity are at play here with ripe pear, pink grapefruit, cake spice and tropical fruit flavours on the palate. Great value. Enjoy now with a fish tacos, or a grilled pork tenderloin and mango compote.

Food pairings: Caesar Salad, fried Gruyere cheese sandwich, raclette.

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, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and a splash of Chardonnay, in one fragrant, creamy, and refreshing wine that’s versatile, crowd pleasing, and very value priced. Pale straw in colour, it’s loaded with fresh and sweet orchard & tropical fruits, fragrant floral blossom, and sweet wildflower honey notes. Its creamy texture and subtle sweetness makes it ideally suited for enjoying with Asian cuisine, smoky BBQ fare, creamy seafood pasta dishes and a wide range of appetizers. At $14.95 this wine offers terrific value! Tasted August 2019. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Peter Wilkins rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Think of a Win Ed ‘smoothie’ blending your favourite Ontario wines, resulting in a bit of flavour sensations from each!
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A Niagara blend of the big 4 white grapes-Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Well-balanced with citrus aromas leading to stone fruit on the palate. The acidity will add zestiness to fish, and the creaminess will go with mild cheese puff pasteries.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pineapple, mango, and tropical fruit aromas are joined by freshly cut grass and zesty lemon and a hint of rose petal. Textured, almost creamy mouthfeel, definitely the work of the Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer content. Not to mention a little ginger spice on the palate accented by peach and apricot flavours. Four grape blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. Aristotle would be pleased as the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Great value on this ideal summer sipper. Pair with charcuterie, curry, or crab cakes.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This will be a fun summer sipper or spritzer base. Pronounced nose of tropical fruit (pineapple & lychee). Very aromatic, off dry with lots of tropical fruit on palate. Tasted April 2019.
From the Niagara Peninsula Wine Region, Featherstone Four Feathers 2018 white blend is a medium-bodied, juicy blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Floral, aromatic and off-dry, this is a crowd-pleaser and easy-to-enjoy-anytime white wine with white floral, vibrant citrus, ripe pear, grapefruit, soft tropical fruit flavours on the palate. Great interplay of acidity to fruit. Lovely balance with a spicy and crisp, clean finish. Chill and pair with mildly spice foods like sushi, sashimi and pad Thai shrimp. - Community Wine Reviews
