Winemaking Notes

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.


Tasting Notes

2019 shows why it could be the vintage of the decade for Chardonnay! The tightness of the core means this wine requires a lot of air, but once open reveals the very heights of what our vineyard is capable of. 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!

When it comes to shipping, our goal is to find the fastest and most reliable shipping option available to us. During the Covid pandemic, we have made significant changes with our delivery partners to serve you better.

For Toronto deliveries we primarily use Fil Delivery. They have been tremendous and we have had glowing reviews from customers. They update you on the expected delivery time throughout the day to ensure satisfaction. Deliveries leave the winery Mondays and Thursdays for delivery Tuesdays and Fridays.

For deliveries to Hamilton, Burlington and Niagara, winery staff often deliver same day or next. We aim to please as often as possible!

ICS is also used for Major Centers other than Toronto and local. Their delivery times are typically next day from pick up at the winery on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Out of province and small-town Ontario deliveries are packaged appropriately with slow-release heat packs in winter reduce breakage and freezing through CanPar. We review shipping daily to identify issues before they arise. We do our best to help communicate any issues in advance to get the wine to you as quickly as possible.

We offer free shipping to anywhere in Ontario with purchase of 6 bottles or more. Purchases of less than 6 bottles can be accommodated for $10 flat rate. Please call the winery to arrange.

Out or province rates are as follows:

Quebec: $10 flat rate

All other provinces: $25 flat rate


We believe in simplicity, so our refund policy is simple and to the point.

  • If you’d like to return an unopened bottle of wine, we’ll gladly do so for you. No questions asked.
  • If there is a problem with the wines (either a fault or it is not to your liking - which happens very irregularly), we happily provide a credit for the full amount on another bottle at the winery. For delivered wine, we issue a credit to be applied to your next purchase.
  • Our goal is to make you happy and if there is anything that we can do to maximize your enjoyment of a Leaning Post Wine... we will do it.
