In the deeper, fuller, and darker style that Stratus Gamay is known for. The wine is plush with ripe fruit balanced with fresh acidity and the softest tannin adding structure. The bright aromatics and flavours follow notes of cherry and wild strawberry compote mixed with cracked black pepper and violets.

Growing Conditions

2015 was a solid vintage with an early and unusually dry spring that led to early budbreak. Slightly below average precipitation all summer, except in June, which was higher than normal. A warm July and August continued into above-seasonal precipitation in the fall.
