Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lovely sparkling to enjoy all year round - this wine is crisp and refreshing with persistent bubbles. Pretty flavors of red berry, floral, orange rind and a touch of peach deliver on the palate. This can be enjoyed on its own or with canapes over the holidays. Tasted November 2017.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Made from 100% pinot noir done with the classical method, this vibrant, dry, crisp sparkler has a lot to celebrate. Gorgeous pale pink colour with red berries - strawberry, raspberry, mandarin citrus with fresh peppermint at the end. Delightfully bright with matching acidity. A perfect pair with smoked salmon mousse and soft cheeses. 91 points December 2017
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Featherstone's Cuvée Joy Rosé is a fine example of the mineral-driven premium traditional method sparkling wines that Featherstone Winery is producing on the Twenty Mile Bench. Delicate strawberry, cherry, and rhubarb notes are supported by refreshing red fruit acidity and limestone minerality on the finish. Paired beautifully with watermelon, feta, and mint skewars in the summer sun. Tasted June 2017. 90+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This bubbly has discreet aromas of ripe pear, citrus fruit, red berries, and orange blossom. On the palate, it is light and crisp with citrus flavours of lemon and clementine.

It would be wonderful as an aperitif, or paired with appetizers, pasta or chicken in a white sauce, or with seafood.

Tasted November 2017
This Sparkling Rosé from Twenty Mile Bench in the Niagara Escarpment wine region is made in the traditional method. Featherstone Joy Premium Cuvée (2015) is fresh strawberry and raspberry on the palate, crisp and clean. 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
