|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
One of my favorite's from a consistent and well known producer. The favorable growing conditions gage way an exceptional finished product. A stunning bouquet - pear, peach, citrus, steel minerality and floral on the nose and palate - well balanced with a great acidity that is lovely on its own or as a superb compliment to herb roasted chicken, and many Asian dishes.

A juicy and delicious Riesling from the Bench. Loads of lime, lemon, yellow apple, hints of stone fruit. Daringly high residual sugar balanced so nicely by the zesty and drying acidity. Decadent! Pair with herb-crusted grilled pork chops.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Bursting with cool climate mouthwatering acidity. Another vintage with honey, canned mandarin orange, and classic Riesling notes. Well balanced, crisp and bright. Paired well with mild green Thai curry with eggplant. Tasted 2016 vintage in October 2018. 91 points. Good value.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Another outstanding example of Ontario made Riesling from Twenty Mile Bench region. Pale straw colour with green reflections. A beautiful fragrant bouquet. Quintessential notes of -freshly opened can of tennis balls- yellow plum chutney, lemon curd, kerosene and pencil erasers. Also a hint of fresh tree saplings, white roses and graphite. Off dry (23gL) High acidity, medium plus body and finish with sugar snap peas and white peachy sweetness persisting. Well balanced. Full, fresh and fruity. Pair with Chicken dumplings, prosciutto and medium bodied cheeses. Anything that has some elevated saltiness with complement the sweet elements perfectly. 90 points. Tasted January 2018

Stone fruit and floral nose with a fruit explosion on the palate with peach, pear and lemon notes. Great minerality throughout. Reviewed March 2018 at Taste Ontario in Ottawa
|From Flat Rock Vineyards on the Niagara Escarpment, this off-dry Niagara Riesling is mouth-watering with lime, apple, pear and citrus flavours. Great balance and character at a terrific price point. Pair with pad Thai. - Community Wine Reviews|
