Another mid-Michigan winery that’s in the process of rapidly expanding with new vines and event space.
Chateau Aeronautique Dry Riesling (2013) Michigan – $18
Color: pale yellow/brass.
Aroma: a spicy, oily nose; very reminiscent of a good Alsace Riesling.
Taste: dry, not very fruity. Crisp up front, then mellows out towards the back of the mouth. Predominately golden apples, plus stone fruit and mineral notes.
This was overwhelmed by the tomatoes and basil that accompanied my chicken; I think I’d much rather have this bottle with some simple charcuterie.
