Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous Ontario sparkler! This is a non-vintage blend (70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir) is made in the traditional method. Aromas include creamy lemon, yellow apple, and fresh bread. Light and vibrant, with a bright, fizzy mousse, mouthwatering acidity and crisp citrus and yeast on the palate. Enjoy with oysters or any seafood.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

NV Brut from Trius. Made using the classic method from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, the aromas are invigorating - Green apple, white grapefruit, clay and limestone notes. Flavours are succinct with an evolution of lime citrus and a touch of fresh herbs. Dry, with well balanced bright acidity. Enjoy with fresh oysters and shrimp tacos.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The latest iteration of this NV Brut is composed of 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir. Plentiful fine mousse, crisp and dry with nicely balanced citrus, lemon and biscuit aromas and flavours. Delectable and perfect as a celebratory fizz with light and fresh canapes. Tasted March 27, 2018.
This Niagara sparkling wine uses the method traditionale, or the traditional method used in Champagne for the second fermentation in the bottle to trap the bubbles. Since 1989, the winery has made this cuvee of grapes naturally fermented and aged in bottle.
