Reviews and Ratings

Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Nice light pink colour, with small consistent bubbles. There are hints red apple, cranberry, and yeast on the nose, with tastes of red berries, citrus, and bread. High acid, and slight tannins round it all out to make this a very delicious traditional style rose.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pretty, floral, fresh picked red berries,toast and sweet spices. Crisp acidity; persistent medium sized bubbles; light; clean. Overall a nice Niagara sparkler. Perfect aperitif.
Tasted: February 2016
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Brilliant rose petal and 12.5% ABV. This is a wonderful sparkling rose, perfect for summer patios and almost any occasion. Light and joyful, reflective of the name, a sure crowd pleaser. Slight skin contact yielding a bubbly with a hint of tannins, field berry aromatics and a hint of garden herb. @jonsteeves rated 89/100 - tasted May 2016
This Niagara sparkling wine uses the Méthode Traditionnelle or the traditional method uses in the Champagne region of France where the second fermentation happens in the bottle to create fine beaded bubbles and extra toastiness. This winery is owned and operated by a husband/wife team , Louise Engel and David Johnson. Featherstone practises eco-friendly farming that is insecticide-free. - Community Wine Reviews
