Nadja's Riesling 2012 - (91 points)
Keep your eye on Ontario riesling from 2012, a superb vintage for the variety. Here is a case in point. Light-bodied and essentially dry, this white shows a rounded, vaguely sweet mid-palate before the acidity kicks in to freshen things up. The flavours hint at tinned peach and apricot with lemon juice and tart apple. It's silky, long and delectable.
Twisted 2011 - (90 points)
This is one of Flat Rock's signatures, and an inspired, consistently good blend. Three grapes: riesling, gewurztraminer and chardonnay. You don't see those together often. But so much for outmoded French blending rules. This is light yet round and off-dry, with a to-and-fro between peach and lime. Fresh and clean. $19.99 in Man.

Good Kharma 2012
Flat Rock Good Kharma Chardonnay 2010 - VINTAGES 356873 - $16.95 - Over the past year there have been many exceptional Oaked Chardonnay's that have come in at the twenty dollar price point. This wine has a killer value! A nice round creamy buttery mouth feel with a lot of Pear and Pineapple flavours. There is a long finish on a wine that overall is very subtle.

Riesling 2012 - (89 Points)
This is a very lively juicy and delicious riesling with a classic nose of petrol, green pear and spice. It's mid-weight, off-dry but very well balanced by crisp acidity. Expect some grapefruit on the finish. The length is excellent. I prefer this to the more expensive, and albeit more powerful Nadja's Riesling from Flat Rock. Tasted September 2013.
