Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful and intense shade of watermelon pink. As delightful on the nose and palate as it is on the eyes. Intense watermelon, cherry, raspberry, and rhubarb aromas before a tart and dry palate with bushels of red fruit flavours. The finish is long and fruity with ripe raspberry and cherry. 42/26/24/8 Cabernet Franc/Gamay/Merlot/Pinot Noir, and very deserving of its 2019 ACWC bronze medal. Outstanding value. Enjoy this gem with nearly anything, especially roast turkey and grilled salmon dishes.
From the Niagara Peninsula wine region, Featherstone 2018 Rosé is juicy with bright red berry, bell pepper and pepper spice flavours on the palate a Peninsula. A rosé blend from Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Merlot red wine grapes with great acidity to match with rich cheeses and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. - 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.
