Trius Showcase Wild Ferment Chardonnay 2015
By now reliably one of the better chardonnays in Niagara, and Canada, Trius's Showcase Oliveira vineyard bottling from winemaker Craig Macdonald's favorite little patch of red clay down by the lake in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation, turns from showy to tight, back to showy again as it evolves in the glass. I'd leave this in the cellar for another 2-3 years minimum to see the pieces of the puzzle line up more seamlessly, but all of the pieces are present: clearly dense, ripe, highly extracted flavours, top quality wood, and in the case of the 2015 vintage, remarkably ripe fruit that flirts with the tropical-pineapple spectrum, but ultimately finds its comfort zone in ripe orchard fruit and creamy lemon. Length is quite exceptional. Refined, complete and substantial wine, with class and sophistication. Score - 93. (John Szabo, MS,, Nov. 13, 2017)
