The husband-and-wife team behind Featherstone takes responsibility for their vines from the ground to the air. In order to limit the damage that grape-nibbling birds, such as starlings, cause to the wine crop, co-owner Louise Engel flies Amadeus, a Harris's hawk, in the vineyard. This off-dry, bistro-style Riesling-based blend always offers soaring floral and citrus characters. Nicely chill and sip, or pair with sushi or spicy spring rolls.
Tasting Note: This value-laden, harmonious blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc expresses aromas and flavours typical of each grape varietal. Orchard fruit, zippy citrus, exotic tropical fruit layered with hints of rose and ginger aromas on the nose provide segue to a mouth-watering wash of crisp apple, ripe pear and peach on the palate. Medium bodied and slightly off-dry, it offers a fresh fruit finish perfect with pan-seared white fish. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5). (Lisa Isabelle, winecurrent.com, April 24, 2017)
