Winemaking Notes

Picked from September 26 to October 16 all grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted. Left partially whole-cluster (25%) and the remaining crushed (75%), the majority of the Pinot Noir was put in concrete fermenters, where it soaked on skins prior to fermentation for 2 days until fermentation occurred spontaneously. During fermentation the skins were punched-down by hand 2 times per day. Once fermentation was finished the wine remained on skins for 3-5 days before being gently pressed. A portion was then transferred to French oak barrels (10% new, 90% older), while the remainder was kept in concrete tank where it underwent spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation and aged for 9 months. The Fifty Pinot Noir was bottled on August 12, 2020.

Tasting Notes

A blend of fruit from 5 different Vineyards from 3 different sub-appelations, this wine explodes out of the glass with wonderful raspberry, kirsch, earth and rose-petals on the nose, with tobacco leaf, herb and mushroom immediately behind it. Made in an approachable yet complex style, the palate shows good tannin and intensity with sugar beet, wet leaves, and mineral flavours giving way to pomegranate and spice. Balanced acidity follows a soft and supple mouthfeel that will age for 3-4 years but can certainly be enjoyed now.

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.
