2020 Four Feathers
We took citrus and stone – fruit flavours from Riesling, caramel pineapple from Chardonnay, a little herbaceousness from Sauvignon Blanc and a sweet spicy perfume from Gewürztraminer and brought them all together for a sophisticated adult smoothie of a wine. Slightly chilled, Four Feathers will add its fourfold pleasures to your patio, party or picnic.
” 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!” Matt Steeves Score 90 points Aug 2019
“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 fish tacos, or a grilled pork tenderloin and mango compote. Food pairings: Caesar Salad, fried Gruyere cheese sandwich, raclette.” Natalie MacLean Score: 91/100 May 16, 2019
