Production notes

A single vineyard wine made from 100% estate grown Riesling from the shallow, shale-heavy soils of Silver Thread Vineyard.  Most of the grapes come from 30-year-old, low-yielding vines. A combination of hand- and machine-harvesting took place in stages between October 4-19, 2016.  2016 was an exceptionally dry year with persistent drought conditions.  Old vines with deep roots were able to find ground water and produce a ripe crop.

Wine Advocate--91 points--"It shows slate, minerals and cement…elegant…very fine."--MS

Wine Spectator--90 points--"Ripe and tightly focused, with yellow apple, quince and peach flavors that race through, lined with honeysuckle and anise notes. The finish has a lingering mineral twinge."–JM
