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.

The grapes used in this vintage of Rose came from two separate vineyards in Niagara-on-the-lake, 89% of Pinot Noir came from Niagara Lakeshore harvested on September 25, and 11% came from a vineyard in Four Mile Creek on October 1st. At Leaning Post, they decided to leave the grapes on skins over night to extract the perfect amount of colour. It was gently pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice settled for a few days before being racked off the gross lees and inoculated. It fermented at cool temperatures to preserves aromatics and fruit flavours. A portion of this rose (43%) spent 3 months in concrete, this helped built the richness and texture on the palate.

Leaning Post first 100% Pinot Noir rosé builds on our house style with a bright and refreshing nose of vibrant strawberry, watermelon, raspberry and orange-peel with lovely notes of honeysuckle and orange-blossom. The palate supports the nose with rich texture and a lovely strawberries and fresh-cream balanced by a mineral and stony core that leads to a surprisingly delicate finish.

This bright, refreshing Rose was built for warm summer days and good company!
