Chardonnay, along with Riesling, is one of the most popular white wines produced in New York State, and Chateau Lafayette Reneau is at the forefront of this production. The 2006 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay is well-balanced, with a touch of vanilla and nutmeg on the palate. Oak aging in barrels renders this wine silky, with a heavy body and a smooth mouthfeel. The finish lingers with hints of lemon and herbs.

A smooth, gentle chardonnay with the appeal of relatively low alcohol, this offers the buttery richness people have come to expect from the variety, while adding some dimension with austere flavors of the soil. Match its light rasp to veal sautéed with oyster mushrooms.

Starts off with lovely aromas of baked apples and vanilla. The same flavors flow through on the palate along with butterscotch and toasted almonds. Enjoy this wine with grilled swordfish and green beans almondine.

The nose of this wine has an underlying hint of vanilla and caramel from the oak that it was exposed to during fermentation. In the mouth, the oak perfectly matches the tropical fruit and hints of apple, as well as the spiciness.

Savory oak aroma with vanilla and cinnamon undertones. Barrel fermentation lends to the generous and silky mouthfeel. Wonderful lemony-crisp, satisfying, well-balanced finish.

The cool climate of Seneca Lake, combined with the expertise of winemaker Tim Miller and the commitment of winery owner Dick Reno, makes for a top notch portfolio of wines. One of their best is the Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, a wonderful expression of the classic grape of Burgundy and California, yet grown only a couple of hours away in Hector, New York. The 1998 vintage offers up vanilla, Bartlett pear and a delicate touch of citrus fruit, balanced with a bit of sweet oak. Try this wine and have yet another reason to ldquo;Uncork New York.rdquo;

Lovely straw gold in color with sweet oak aroma. Mouthfilling vanilla bean and tropical flavors add a buttery texture to this exquisitely balanced classic.
