Nadja’s Vineyard 2017 Riesling reveals fragrance of green apple, lemon, salt and ginger. Produced by Flat Rock Cellars, located on the Twenty Mile Bench, in Ontario, Canada, this light-bodied, crisp and delicious Riesling will please on any summer occasion. Palate: green apple, citrus zest, honeysuckle, cinnamon and ginger. Enjoy.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful! Off-dry, fragrant, and lovely. Aromas of green apple, lime, and stony minerality. Bright acidity, tons of lime on the palate and a slight herbaceousness on the finish. Enjoy with spicy seafood dishes.

Natalie's Review

Flat Rock Nadja's Vineyard Riesling 2017, Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: Flat Rock Nadja's Vineyard 2017 Riesling is an off-dry Riesling with green apple and lime zest aromas. On the palate, this is a bright and vibrant lemony Riesling with soft orange and herbal notes on the palate. Its mouth-watering acidity, makes it a fantastic food wine to pair with pork schnitzel and cheese spaetzle. Named for winemaker Ed Madronich's mother Nadia, this vineyard was planted in 2000. The two-hectare vineyard sits on the top of the Niagara Escarpment and with this elevation, the grapes ripen later than those below in the valley by several weeks. Drink: 2018-2022. 578625 11.60% D 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 92/100. November 9, 2018 Top Rated White Wine. Venerated Vegetarian Wine  Full Review

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.
