Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Love the total package of this wine - the nose - apple, pear, butter and citrus notes - the mouthfeel is silky and elegant - lemon, apple, vanilla and sweet spice, - the hint of butter disappears with the zippy acidity - it is a great vintage from the admired Niagara producer. Well done!
From Twenty Mile Bench on the Niagara Escarpment, Flat Rock The Rusty Shed (2014) Chardonnay is Full-bodied with baked apple dumpling, pear compote, baked apple pie and citrus on the nose. On the palate, ripe apple, ripe apricot and more fresh citrus flavours. The Chardonnay wine grapes for this wine were whole-bunch pressed and hand-plunged every six hours during fermentation to extract maximum fruit flavours. - 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.
