Fruity finds for fall
FEATHERSTONE FOUR FEATHERS 2016
VQA Twenty Mile Bench,
Niagara Escarpment, Ontario
341586 (D) 750 mL $14.95
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.
