Natalie's Score: 91/100

I love this Chardonnay, and I'm not a Chardonnay lover. So luscious and fall into it loveliness. Rich, full-bodied with lovely aromas of butterscotch, vanilla smoke and fleshy peach. Pair with roasted chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: scallops with a sesame ginger dressing, spinach and pepper jack stuffed chicken, pasta with tomato sauce, pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A remarkably crafted, juicy, creamy, full-bodied Niagara Chardonnay. This Chardonnay boasts fine vanilla, flinty minerality, cedar, wildflower honey, citrus, apple and apricot notes. A fine pair with smoked prosciutto (spek) and gruyere grilled cheese. Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I wish more lovers of white Burgundy were open to trying Canadian Chardonnay. The oaking on this one reminds me so much of a $30 Burgundy - for $20. Quite rich on the fruit (tree fruits) which is not exactly Burgundian but neither is this wine. Lovely deft hand on the oak. My highest endorsement - "I'm buying some."
Flat Rock (2015) is a full-bodied Chardonnay from the Niagara Escarpment's Twenty Mile Bench. Fresh and zesty, there is a great apple-fresh zestiness with butterscotch and smoke on this cool climate Chardonnay. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
