generation of young winemakers propelling the Finger Lakes
region to prominence. At the helm of Silver Thread since 2011,
the couple has shepherded the 36-year-old estate winery to new
heights with a focus on expressive, terroir-driven Riesling. Estate
vines are farmed bio-intensively, a holistic, non-chemical
approach. Small-batch wine production does not exceed 3,000
cases. The turtle image on our label is a local Native American
artifact that reminds us to care for the land and water that give us
the gift of wine
Light lemon core with expressive aromas of lemon, wet stone, white peach and flowers. Bone dry, light bodied and racy on the palate, the balance between fruit and acidity is perfect; green apples, pears, and peaches with a pronounced minerality, leading to a long, refreshing finish.
This very much resembles many high quality German Rieslings in the trocken style, in both its elegance and composition, and is a fine example of why Finger Lakes has gotten so much attention on the wine scene around the globe.
Silverthread use organic practices when producing their wines.
