Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From Ontario's Niagara Escarpment, this rich Chard shows a tropical nose and a full-bodied, luscious palate giving guava, passionfruit, caramel and buttered toast, all tied together with a touch of lemon. Pair with grilled scallops. Excellent value!
Tasted Sept. 2018
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A cool-climate Chard with a ton of value driving it. It is fresh amd clean; a wine with cut that could pair magnificent with shrimp and creamy sauces.
Pale lemon-green, there are some fresh aromas of green apple and honeysuckle. Pear and vanilla too. Don't overchill for maximum flavour.
Great cool climate acidity, with more apple, pear, and some melon. There is a smattering of autolytic smokiness to it that becomes more apparent on the palate. The Chards from Flat Rock tend to have a bit more flare to them. All due to carefully tended elevage.
If you have a chance in Niagara, go visit their ultra-modern winery. The view is terrific!
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A noble wine with a noble generosity, with a portion of every sale going to support local Ontario food banks. Balanced, medium plus acidity, fruit, body. Apple, raw almond, baked croissant, candied lemon. Good complexity at this price point. Good value. Pairs well with Asian fare, or roast chicken. Tasted 2016 vintage in Sept 2018. 89 points
From the Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region, Flat Rock's Good Kharma 2016 Chardonnay is buttery, toasty and rich with tropical fruit flavours. And it is good Kharma - a portion of sales are donated to the Ontario Association of Food Banks. - 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.
