Tasting Notes

This wine is named after the red-tailed hawks that we see soaring over the vineyards of Niagara. Aged in French oak, this wine is liquid velvet in a glass: seductively flavoured, textured and generous. This is a wine for food. It matches grilled or roasted meats at table, or strong cheeses after dinner when you want to put your feet up.

Technical Notes

Fermented with wild yeast strains. Fermentation took place in small 1„2 tonne vats. Primary fermentation took 20 days in total. Pressed into barrel (French oak) and inoculated with commercial malolactic bacteria.

Reviews

Like the high-flying raptor that is an integral part of Featherstone’s sustainable agriculture, this wine delivers high-toned aromas of cherry/berry, spice and vanilla. Dry, medium bodied, it’s round, fruity and fresh, well framed with ripe tannin and fresh acidity. Attractive, spicy, peppery notes enhance the tangy, fruity finish. Finely crafted and quite delicious. winecurrent.com, Susan Desjardins
