We're excited to reveal that Flat Rock Cellars is the My Wine Canada Wine Club feature this month. This means that you can get 2-3 bottles of their wine along with tasting notes and pairing suggestions shipped to your home or office in time for Christmas! And what are the chances that their wine will pair well with the roasted turkey, glazed duck, or roast beast that may grace your dinner table? Since Flat Rock specializes in Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it's about 100% likely that the wines you receive in this month's wine packages will pair perfectly with your holiday feasts. Sign up by Friday, Dec. 15, and you'll receive your wine before Christmas. Our monthly wine club membership also makes the PERFECT gift with wine packages delivered each month. It's truly the gift that keeps giving!
Hailing from the Jordan Bench on the Niagara Escarpment, this winery has been crushing it for almost 20 years. Founded by Ed Madronich, and now operated by his son, Ed Jr., Flat Rock Cellars has never wavered in their dedication to making excellent wine that resonates personally with consumers.
In the vineyard, grapes are hand-picked and hand-sorted to ensure only the best fruit are included. Inside the winery, a 5-level gravity flow system helps the wine to move along on its journey with minimal handling and pumping. This ensures the wine's purity and quality. All of this is done with environmental sustainability in mind, so much of the winery's features and technology are environmentally responsible.
And as for the wine? Well, the proof is in the Christmas pudding. Flat Rock's wines are elegant, flavourful, and consistent, and they manage to raise the bar every vintage. Here are four of our favourites - all of which are featured in various wine club packages this month!
The 2016 vintage of Twisted features Riesling on the main stage supported by Gewürztraminer and a cameo by Chardonnay. The performance is racy, expressive, and delightful! The wine is off dry with notes of orange creamsicle, Granny Smith apple, and honey. Crisp and tart balanced with a honeyed sweetness, and far too easy to drink.
Aromas of creamed butter, hazelnuts and spice, pear and citrus. A medium-bodied wine with a lively palate. Will pair well with cocktail party appetizers and holiday dinner foods from roasted chicken to latkes.
Black fruits abound along with green vegetal notes and savoury herbs of sage and rosemary in this vintage of Flat Rock's Gravity. Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, the wine has healthy tannins and is well-balanced and complex. Pair this with herb-crusted lamb chops, grilled salmon, and sautéed mushrooms with tarragon.
This wine is Sold Out and the only way that you can get it is by signing up for the All Red Wine pack this month! This Pinot Noir is smooth and round on the palate with black fruits, stewed red fruits, and herbaceous notes of rosemary, sage and tarragon. A hint of smoke lingers on the finish. This wine is the perfect partner for grilled pork loin, venison stew, BBQ duck, charcuterie and, in case there are any doubts, crispy roasted turkey with savoury stuffing!
