Stratus 70% Bar

Stratus 70% Bar

Collections: Microbatch

After roasting cacao beans from Ecuador we mixed the nibs with Stratus red wine lees (residual yeast cells and grape solids left after the winemaking process) and aged them in an oak wine barrel. After three months, an incredible aromatic wine—infused cocoa emerged. We continued with our chocolate making process, grinding, refining and conching. The result is an elegant 70% chocolate with a heightened dimension of flavour. An experimental Soma chocolate bar with the subtle flavour of a Stratus wine. Only 400 bars were made 200 being sold at Stratus and 100 at each of our 2 stores.

Origin: Ecuador, lees from Ontario Canada
Awards: International Chocolate Awards World 2015 Silver, Canadian 2016 Silver
