Description

Stratus Niagara Cabernet Franc

Stratus Niagara Cabernet Franc has aromatics of dark cherries, mocha, black plum, with hints of graphite and cigar box spice. The full and expressive palate is one of luscious black fruit with a serious depth of flavour. This intense and ripe fruit core is supported by chocolate-like tannins and assertive acidity, leading to a rewardingly savoury and sustained finish.

Located in the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Stratus Vineyards is a gravity flow winery, distinguished by its LEED-certified facility, its commitment to sustainability and wines of outstanding quality.

The vineyard sits on 62 acres near the southeastern border of the Niagara Lakeshore sub-appellation. It shares the benefits of the region with its neighbours, while enjoying advantages that are uniquely its own. The vineyard is far enough away from the moderating influence of Lake Ontario to grow grape varieties that need warmer temperatures in the summer. At the same time, the lake’s proximity helps protect the vines from early frost in the autumn.

Much of story of the Niagara region and of the character of Stratus wine can be found in the soil. Layers of mineral-rich earth, resting on a limestone foundation, are the legacy of continent-shaping ice ages. This glacial till is a clay-loam mosaic from which they chose site specific plantings for the varieties. Nearer the surface, the organic matter in their soil is a reminder that people, from the First Nations to United Empire Loyalists, have been farming and cultivating this land for generations.

Six 10-metre-tall frost fans, each covering about 10 acres, stand guard over their vineyard. On particularly chilly nights, usually in early spring or late fall, the fans pull down warm air to displace the cold, stagnant air at ground level, raising the temperature anywhere from one to 10 degrees. Over the course of a year, they run the fans for about 40 hours, yet in that short time they can help them save a season’s worth of grapes.
