Tasting Notes

Husband and Wife duo Ilya and Nadia started Leaning Post winery in Niagara over 10 years ago. Initially a virtual set up, the winery now located on Highway 8, has become a reference producer in Niagara.
This mixed case includes 12 bottles with the following wines:

2018 Leaning Post Chardonnay 'The Fifty' VQA Niagara Peninsula
This wine is the epitome of Chablis meets Ontario. The nose bursts with lemon zest, aniseed, green apple and toasty lees. Fresh lemon, lemon curd, licorice, and more bright green apple is all tied together with crisp acidity and a strong mineral note. This wine will age well for the next 5-8 years. Try with creamy cheeses, sole meuniere, and roasted chicken.

2019 Leaning Post Rosé VQA Niagara Peninsula
Leaning Post makes this wine in the style that we love, bright and refreshing with a pale colour and great fruit. The nose has watermelon, sour cherry, raspberry, and beautiful floral orange blossom with a fresh juicy palate to round it out. This bright, refreshing Rose was built for warm summer days and good company!

2018 Leaning Post Pinot Noir 'The Fifty' VQA Niagara Peninsula
A blend of fruit from 3 different Vineyards from 2 different sub-appellations, this wine shows wonderful upfront bing cherry and raspberry on the nose, with a decidedly leafy, herbal and earthy edge immediately behind it. Made in an approachable yet complex style, the palate shows great mossy/underbrush, beet and tobacco leaf flavours framing the cherry and raspberry intensity. Balanced acidity follows a soft and supple mouthfeel that will age for 3-4 years but can certainly be enjoyed now.

2017 Leaning Post Cuvée Winona VQA Niagara Peninsula
89% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc
This blended wine over-delivers massively for the price. The nose is pronounced with dried cranberries, lavender, licorice, cocoa, cedar, and blueberries that the palate replicates and follows with raspberry, vanilla, and rich tannins. It is perfectly drinkable now but will age well over the next 5-8 years. Great with burgers, cured meat, and hard cheese.
The grapes were handpicked on November 4th and 9th when they were hand sorted, destemmed and placed in small open top fermenters. After a 5 day cold soak the grapes began fermentation with indigenous yeast and were hand punched-down 2 times per day for 4 weeks. After 5 weeks on skins, the wine was gently pressed and racked in to oak barrels (20% new) for aging where it remained for 12months. It was lightly filtered and bottled on March 19th, 2019.
