Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The microclimate of Nadjas Vineyard is marginally warmer than the rest of Twenty Mile Bench. This permits slightly higher levels of ripeness and slightly higher quality fruit. This single vineyard Riesling explodes with juicy and ripe lemon, peach, and apricot, then follows with citrus blossom and tropical fruit hints. A fuller Riesling than typical in the region, sporting a body of 11.5% ABV with 20 grams of residual sugar per litre. Dress up some pork chops with balsamic, peach slices, and feta.
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.

Natalie's Review

Flat Rock Nadja's Vineyard Riesling 2016, Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: This lovely off-dry Niagara Riesling is bursting with aromas of fresh citrus, lime and green apple. Remarkable, even though there are 18 grams of sugar in this wine, the acidity balances it perfectly, yielding only a slight impression of sweetness. Terrific mouth-watering acidity for seafood and salads. Drink: 2017-2020. 578625 11.60% D 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 92/100. November 11, 2017 Top Rated White Wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
