Matt’s review:  Stratus Red 2012 – This impressive Niagara-on-the-Lake winery consistently produces some of the finest wines available in Ontario.  2012 was the best growing season the winery had experienced which enabled the grapes to achieve their optimal ripeness thereby contributing to the big and bold style that this red blend exhibits.   128 more words

Matt’s review:

Stratus White represents the finest white wine that this acclaimed Niagara-on-the-Lake winery produces.  Winemaker J-L Groux selects the very best grapes from a handful of varieties to incorporate into this premium white wine, and after countless blends, the best representation of the vintage is showcased in the final assemblage.  165 more words
