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.
