Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fresh, balanced and brilliant. Granny Smith Apple, zesty with a hint of bread dough. A wonderful Canadian cool climate Chardonnay dominant bubbly. Paired well with a Canadian maple bacon, ham and pineapple thin crust pizza. Tasted The 2010 vintage June 2017. 90 points. BespokeTastings
Wine grapes for Flat Rock Cellars, Riddled (2010) came from the Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region This Ontario bubbly is made from 100% Chardonnay wine grapes and is fresh, crisp with crunchy green apple and stone fruit, and was named "Riddled" as a tribute to the process of making sparkling wine, especially the traditional ways in Champagne, where bottles were turned periodically, or riddled, as they rested upside down on their lees (sediment) before disgorging that sediment and putting the final big cork in the bottle. - 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.
