Leaning Post - Sauvignon Blanc
“The palate has fresh acidity, kiwi, gooseberry, and passionfruit as well as a pleasant flinty note.”
Harvested on September 19th (two weeks earlier than the 2017) to preserve freshness and aromatics, it spent 18 hours on skins before being pressed off, settled, racked, and inoculated with a selected yeast. After fermentation a portion of the wine was moved to barrel where it was allowed to age for 4 months to help build texture. The remainder was left in tank to maintain freshness. We bottled this wine on March 18th, 2019 in order to preserve the intense aromatics and fresh fruit character you expect from Sauvignon Blanc.

At Leaning Post we like Sauvignon Blanc to reflect our unique terroir and this wine shows it in spades. More natural texture than the 2017 which was a result of the warm summer but picked early to preserve the beautiful mango, passionfruit, and gooseberry aromatics we love about the grape. This is a wine built for immediate consumption or near term aging (3 years). Drink it with fish tacos, your favourite summer pasta, or a cobb salad.
