2020 Dry Riesling

Silver Thread Dry Riesling is our flagship wine and a benchmark for this signature style of the Finger Lakes.  Ripe fruit aromas include peaches, kiwi, starfruit and key lime.  Medium body with a honeyed texture.  Noticeably long finish expresses grapefruit, orange blossom and minerals.

 IRF-scale “Dry.”

A strategic blend of grapes from our Estate Vineyard, Doyle Fournier Vineyard on Seneca Lake, Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard on Keuka Lake and Randolph O'Neill Vineyard on Cayuga Lake, this wine combines the best attributes of three classic sites.

Pairing suggestions: truly everything pairs well with dry Riesling.

Production notes

The 2020 growing season was unusually sunny and warm, with borderline drought conditions.  Grapes achieved much higher sugar levels than normal, but retained lively acidity and freshness.  Grapes were hand-harvested from multiple vineyard sites October 10-25, 2020.

Fermentation choices are based on the qualities of each vineyard and its fruit.  A diversity of approaches, including whole-cluster pressing and skin contact, warm and cool fermentations, native and cultured yeast are used across many small lots and then blended together.  Wines are never fined and minimal sulfites are added prior to bottling.
