This is delicious - a very bright, fruit packed, juicy, barely off dry riesling with an explosive nose of peaches,...

Continues to hit all the right notes. What dry Riesling in Ontario has to be. Sodaliscious and stone cold. Winemaker...

Tart and off dry with a lovely tension that adds excitement to the palate. Fresh, light to medium bodied with notes...

An open, quite ripe, fresh green apple-scented riesling, with a fine acid-sugar balance on the palate. There's fine...

The nose on this wine hit me with so much peach-filled goodness and it did not disappoint on the palate. A fresh, fruity and delicious Riesling. I look forward to enjoying it again soon.

Tasted November 2013. Light and crisp, this hit me with wonderful flavours of green apple and pear followed by a subtle bitter citrus. Drank with a cousin I hadn't seen in years, and her reaction when I pulled out the bottle was 'omg, that's my favourite, how did you know?' When I returned home, I went out and bought the last bottle in the store. Will enjoy this one again.

The 2012 Flat Rock Cellars Riesling has intense aromas of green/yellow apple, light citrus and washed stones minerality. It is a sweet, medium bodied Riesling with crisp acidity and a medium to long finish. Food friendly or a sipper; drink now and for the next 5 years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted April/13 at WineAlign Cru tasting.

From hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed fruit. Arrested fermentation yields this charming Riesling from the Twenty Mile Bench. Off-dry, offering plenty of ripe peach, citrus, and underlying fresh acidity. Approachable with good length.
Tasted April 2013.
