Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lively Riesling with aromas of marmalade, tropical fruit, honey, and orange blossom. On the palate, it is off-dry with flavours of pineapple, clementine, and lemon. It has a vibrant acidity and would pair nicely with spicy sausage pizza or with Asian food.
Tasted November 2017
From the Twenty Mile Bench in the Niagara Escarpment wine region, Flat Rock Nadja's Vineyard (2016) is an off-dry Riesling with lime, lemon zest, fresh green apples and flint on the palate accompanied by a mouth watering acidity, which makes this a fantastic food wine to pair with pork snitzel and cheese spaetzle. Named for winemaker Ed Madronich's mother Nadia, this vineyard was planted in 2000. The two-hectare vineyard sits on the top of the Niagara Escarpment and with this elevation, the grapes ripen later than those below in the valley by several weeks. This vintage was awarded Platinum at the 2017 National Wine Awards of Canada. - 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.
