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
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Chardonnay has herbal and mineral aromas with a subtle touch of wood. Fruit wise, there is peach, mango, orange marmalade, with a hint of honey.

Flavour wise, think barbecued pineapple so that the fruit is caramelized. It is a full bodied white that is creamy and has fresh acidity. Overall, it is nicely made and very enjoyable.

Tasted October 2017
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Big fan of this chardonnay from a well known and consistent Producer - so many flavors are packed into one parcel - the nose is lively with hints of apple, orange and vanilla. The palate - wow - nectarine, peaches, apple - green/red/yellow, vanilla, smoke, oak - a very well crafted cool climate chardonnay - simply wonderful!
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 creamy and full-bodied Chardonnay from the Twenty Mile Bench in the Niagara Escarpment wine region. Great value under $20, this Chardonnay is showing ripe apple, some pineapple, honey, soft citrus and vanilla notes. Pair with raclette and a snowy day. - Community Wine Reviews
