Featherstone 2014 Chardonnay, Canadian Oak

As one of the few Ontario wineries using Canadian oak, Featherstone should get a medal just for making something 100% homegrown (but they don’t, they compete like everyone else). Aged 12 months in Canuck wood and using wild fermentation (i.e.: indigenous) helps keep the wine as Canadian as possible. Aromas are apple and vanilla loaded, while the palate is layered with butterscotch, apple and lime, and that’s just for starters – then there’s coconut, pineapple and tropical elements that sneak in, there’s also a kind of creaminess that’s also kicking around inn there leading up to a long finish.  Price: $21.95 – Rating: ****+
