Reviews and Ratings

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

Unoaked Chardonnays often come with highly elevated crispness, which some love. This one has a bit more roundness and a heavier mouthfeel than often encountered in unoaked Chardonnay. Beautiful binned apple fruit comes across in a pure manner from start to finish. Well crafted.
Flat Rock Unplugged 2016 is a clean and crisp unoaked Chardonnay from the Twenty Mile Bench in the Niagara Escarpment wine region. Look for apple dumpling, lemon curd and ripe stonefruit flavours on this fresh Chardonnay. Pair with grilled pork chops. - 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.
