A nose bursting with lemon curd, peach cobbler, spiced-orange and honeysuckle unfolds over a background of wintergreen, spring flowers and soft baking spices. The palate follows the nose, layering lemon-meringue over crème-fraiche and salted-caramel with a river-stone/mineral base that is balanced by a massive core-weight and density.  All this complexity is then swept away by exceptional acidity leading to what seems like an eternal finish. This wine will easily age well over the next decade but will probably last much longer!

The 2019 vintage was a very cool season which gave us the opportunity to hang our Chardonnay until it was ready to be picked on September 30th 2019.  We hand harvest the chardonnay and keep the clones (548 and 96) separate from pressing throughout the barrel aging process.  We gently press the fruit and allow the juice to settle for a few days before transferring to barrel for fermentation.  This wine underwent a spontaneous primary and malolactic fermentation.  We allowed the wine to remain in barrel once fermentation was complete for 17 months.  This wine was bottled for your enjoyment on August 11, 2021.

A leaning post is what you find at the beginning of a row of grapes, anchoring the wires that are the frame-work for growing grapevines. It is the beginning of an obsession to translate a time and place into liquid. Leaning Post wines take you to that beginning by finding small, unique plots of land in Niagara and putting them in bottle. Because after stripping away all the fancy buildings and high-tech equipment you are left with a place on this earth that grows wine unlike any other. When you taste that in a glass you just know it.

Lovely Chardonnay

The lemon, peach, orange and floral notes in the description on the website were all there in the wine. I enjoyed this very much.
