Jon Steeves rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Bursting with cool climate mouthwatering acidity. Honey, canned mandarin orange, slight vinyl essence. Well balanced. Paired well with mild green Thai curry with eggplant. Tasted 2015 vintage in Jan 2018. 91 points. Great value.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely fresh floral, citrus and petrol aromas followed by yummy ripe peach, crisp yellow apple and lemon honey flavours. It’s well balanced with juicy acidity and a long honey-citrus finish. Enjoy with Thai coconut curry beef meatballs. Tasted Jan 2018 by @sommsosa.




Natalie's Review

Flat Rock Riesling 2015, Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: The winery sent me the 2015 vintage of this lovely Riesling to taste and evaluate, which is fortunate since it was the 2013 vintage at the LCBO tasting. Green apple and white pear. Love it. Building an inuksuk is now a ritual at the end of harvest for this winery: lifting the heavy stones requires a team effort. Pair with roast turkey and fun. The winery does whole cluster pressing to extract pure flavour, and only of the first 600 litres per tonne of fruit. Ed allows the juice to settle during a long, slow fermentation. The 2014 vintage is a blend of two distinct blocks of 21B clone vines now in their early teens as the winery describes them. Finishes with fresh pink grapefruit notes. Drink: 2017-2020. 43281 11% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 91/100. September 2, 2017 Best Value White Wine. Charming Grilled Chicken Wine  Full Review
