2020 Black Sheep Riesling

2020 Black Sheep Riesling
We make wine with sheep. Our eco – friendly approach to vineyard management includes a roving flock that munches on grapevine leaves. The sheep feed on the leaves thus exposing the Riesling grape clusters – which the sheep ignore – to sunlight. This brings about healthier grapes with enhanced ripeness. Aromas of crisp apple cavort with peach – pear flavours and a zip of acidity.

” Wonderfully quenching but with a kiss of sweetness is the 2018 Featherstone Black Sheep Riesling. This racy wine tastes like a scoop of gourmet lime sorbet laced with a touch of grapefruit zest, green mango and sea salt. Terrific wine to pour as an aperitif on its own or with a nibble of gouda or goat cheese and crackers. Charming.” 91 points; Carolyn Evans Hammond, The Toronto Star; April 30, 2020

“The fruit was handpicked, hand sorted, whole bunch pressed and kept on the lees for about a month. It shows beautiful and pure aromas of lime, salinity, lemon blossom, green apple and a subtle ginger note. There’s a playful tug of sweet and tart lime/grapefruit on the palate with apple skin and ginger accents on bright, vibrant finish.” 90 points; Rick Van Sickle, May 5, 2020

Featherstone Black Sheep Riesling is one of the foremost examples of Ontario Riesling. As our international reputation of excellent premium Riesling continues to grow, it will be sustained by wines such as this one. Perennially vibrant, floral, structured and fruity, this will also deliver the fine and pure mineral for which both great Riesling and Ontario are so renowned. This wine’s considerable track record suggests that it will easily reward five years in your cellar- and likely beyond.
