2017 Riesling "STV Estate Vineyard"

Planted in 1982 on shallow, shale-heavy soils, Silver Thread’s Estate Vineyard produces Riesling of unparalleled interest. Intensively hand-managed by the Brock family, the vineyard sits on a slope at the edge of the east side of Seneca Lake. Low-yielding, 30-year-old vines deliver wine with racy acidity, ample minerality, lemon-lime zestiness, and hints of exotic jasmine.  Medium dry.  Seneca Lake appellation.

Limited production– 60 cases produced.

Sample this Riesling alongside its sisters–Riesling Doyle Fournier Vineyard and Riesling Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard–for the ultimate Finger Lakes Riesling experience.

Tasting notes

A classic Riesling with aromas of lemon pith, apricot and juniper.  Medium body with bristling acidity and a long finish characterized by slate, fresh lime and apricot nectar.  Medium dry. 

Production notes

Grapes were hand-picked in stages beginning Oct. 17 and concluding Oct. 28, 2017.

This juice was separated into four fermentations--including one in a 10-year-old neutral barrel with malolactic fermentation--to allow the grapes to express themselves in a myriad of ways.  The lots were blended prior to bottling.
