|Bright medium-light straw colour. Spicy, intense, gently complex, fairly toasty, lemon meringue nose with some mineral-tinged notes. Dry, medium bodied, quite well structured, fairly spicy, ripe lemon meringue flavours with a lingering, high acid, cedary, mineral-tinged finish. Well made and ready-to-drink. This wine is 100% barrel fermented with partial malo and then transferred to stainless steel with no barrel aging but 9 months on the lees. A total of 422 cases was produced.

A Best Buy
|What began as a virtual winery became a realized dream for Ilya and Nadia Senchuk when they opened a winery on their property in Winona, Ontario. This wine is grown in three vineyards: their own estate Leaning Post vineyard, one in Twenty Mile Bench and one in Beamsville Bench. It was barrel-fermented in a classically cool Niagara vintage. Look for a clear expression of minerality along with peach, pear, lime and a touch of crunchy pineapple. Sip with roast chicken or barbecued pork tenderloin.
