Day 147 Drink: Chateau Lafayette Reneau Niagara Mist
Chateau Lafayette Reneau has one of the most picturesque locations in the entire Finger Lakes, over looking Seneca Lake. The winery started in the 1980s and has grown over the years in stature, winning a number of awards along the way.
Chateau Lafayette Reneau Niagara Mist pours a lovely golden color and immediately offers up grape and honey suckle aromas. This is certainly for people who enjoy wines a touch on the sweet side. It is not a dessert wine, but is somewhere between a semi-dry and late harvest riesling. Plenty of attractive fruit flavors. Very nice for a light conversation wine with friends.
