Waaayyy overoaked. Too creamy, too heavy. No fruit no acidity. A wine that's overdone.

Acheté directement de chez stratus, nez d'ananas,fruits exotiques,caramel, sucre brun, juste asse d'acidité mais personnellement j'e préféré les vins de glace élaboré a partir de Riesling ou de Vidal ils sont plus complexe

A Mixed Bag in Toronto on a Wednesday (Jay's Place - Toronto, On): (tasted double blind). This pours a fairly dark shade of golden yellow. The nose to me speaks of Semillon with abundant wax, slate, straw, honey, lemon, herbs and lanolin. Certainly some slightly more advanced aromatics which had me thinking this was a few years older than it's actual age. Definitely some oak on this wine with mildly oxidative winemaking lending the richness. The palate is dry with a touch more viscosity than expected and a medium minus length finish carried on wax, herbs and honey. This an old-world styled wine with the emphasis on non-fruit complexity. Well made. My best guess was aged Semillion from Australia or possibly white bordeaux and that is essentially what this is styled after. A blend which involves prominent Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with other white varieites in support. I thought this was quality wine.

2008 Stratus Sémillon Icewine

Niagara-on-the-Lake VQA more

12/25/2014 - hrazdiiv Likes this wine: 90 points

I love Canadian icewine and was dying to try this given it is (to my knowledge) the only maker of Semillon icewine in Ontario. It was indeed a great effort, but I have to say that the two other usual icewine varietals - Vidal and Riesling - are probably better suited to making this type of wine. This exhibits a great nose of pineapple, toffee, even a touch of smoke with a beautiful dark colour. Nice acidity, but the finish was a little short and the flavours just one notch short of what other elite ice wines exhibit. Still, if you're into ice wines, I highly recommend you try this wine from this very reputable producer.

Very easy drinking red. Not bold or full. Smooth medium-light body. Very Pinot like, perhaps a touch of Cab Franc?

Really like this wine. It has a lot going on from all of the blends that are put together. This is really an out of the box kind of wine but very different than just about everything we have ever had. The Semillon is up front first followed closely by Gewurztraminer with Sauvignon Blanc tones throughout with a Chardonnay finish. Very interesting and worth a try if you are looking for something a little different.

Golden yellow. In the bouquet honey, butter candy, polishing wax and litchi. On the palate an enormous concentration, litchi and honey again. Very tasty wine.

Needed a four-hour decant to show its stuff. Years of life left in this beauty. Strong notes of black currant, plum and earth, with a touch of vanilla-chocolate. Good tannic structure, with a smooth, lingering finish. It was the first tasting of a Niagara-area wine for all but me at the table, and everyone was very impressed.

All I can is wow, probably one of the most intense Merlots that we've had from Niagara, a testament to JL Groux's winemaking skills and the fabulous 2010 vintage, one for the ages - Dark, full bodied with a nose of plum, mocha, spice, cherry and vanilla, amazing structure and intensity, balanced, yet should be cellared for the long haul, spicy, tannic on the palate with terrific length, excellent (93 Points).
