Leaning Post The Fifty 2020 Chardonnay is a vegan-friendly, cool-climate Chard from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. Dry, medium-bodied, elegant and bright on the palate with fresh apple, pear, stone fruit, vanilla and lemon zest flavours finishing long with a flinty minerality. Chill and enjoy with a pork tenderloin en croute. Drink or hold.

Chardonnay food pairings: grilled salmon steaks, roast chicken, quiche, onion tarte, pork chops, roast chicken, turkey tournedos.

Reviews and Ratings

Leaning Post The Fifty 2020 Chardonnay is a vegan-friendly, cool-climate and barrel-fermented Chard from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. Grapes were sourced from Grimsby Hillside Vineyard, Senchuk Vineyard and Hemeris Vineyard. After barrel fermentation, the wine was transferred to stainless-steel tanks and rested on its lees giving finesse and extra freshness to the wine. Fresh with aromas of ripe peach, melon and orchard fruit, cream, lemon meringue, nutty and biscuite flavours rich, weighty and long on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
