Winemaking Notes

Our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested on September 30, 2022, and gently pressed into a stainless-steel tank; where it settled for two days before being racked off lees.  We chose to inoculate with a selected yeast and fermented at a very cool temperature to preserve its freshness and beautiful aromatic.  After fermentation, this wine was split into two different vessels for lees age: a portion of wine was transferred into 3 neutral French oak barriques, and the remaining wine stayed in stainless-steel for 7 months. We bottled this wine in April 2023.

 

Tasting Notes

Our goal for our Sauvignon Blanc is to reflect the unique Niagara terroir and this wine always delivers. 2022 was a warm, long and relatively dry season characterized by small crop levels on the vines. This left us with low volumes, but very intense wines with fantastic natural acidity. Very intense tropical aromas of pineapple, passionfruit and mango lead to kiwi, lemongrass and lime-leaf on the nose.  The palate has bright acidity matched by a creamy texture, with key-lime and starfruit battling with passionfruit for supremacy, while lemongrass and honeysuckle stand back and watch.  The finish is the most surprising, with the flintiest, most “wet stones in a mountain stream” minerality we have ever seen on our Sauvignon Blanc! Drink now or over the next 3 years. Enjoy with pan-fried halibut, fresh pesto & anchovy-paste pasta, or lemon & herb roasted chicken.

Shiping

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

Returns

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.
