Maker CommentsLast year a novel idea came to us after an inspired conversation with our friends at Stratus Vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Shortly thereafter, an oak barrel partially filled with the residual yeast cells from the winemaking process known as "lees" was delivered from Stratus to Soma. We roasted some Nacionial cacao from Ecuador and added the roasted nibs to the wine barrel, sealed it and then left it alone, kicking it around every once in a while to make sure things were mixed. 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.
