Stratus │ Blanc de Blancs │ Méthode Traditionnelle
Delivering a remarkably vibrant nose of orchard-fresh green apple and Bosc pear, an alluring floral bouquet of acacia and Baby’s breath help guide stimulating notes of freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime zest. Though light in texture, alongside energetic flavours of quince and honeysuckle, the bubbles coat the mouth, creating a notably deep texture sustained by a chalk-like salinity.
”It has remarkably intense and complex aromas and flavours… I noted lifted baked apple, aged nutty notes…general leesy/toastiness but there is no debating the great intensity, tart-edged lemony acidity and firmness... I was floored by the intensity and outstanding length.” - 93 points, David Lawrason, WineAlign

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.
