Silver Thread Vineyard was established in the early 1980s on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, at the heart of New York's Finger Lakes region. At this location the bottom of the lake drops almost 200 feet below sea level, a dramatic mass of water that creates a distinct microclimate on the leeward (eastern) hillside — cooling breezes in summer, radiating warmth through the winter, and extending the length of the growing season. On this hillside 250 years ago the Iroquois people tended huge peach orchards, a testament to this temperate 'island' within a cool region. The vineyard was originally planted exclusively with the classic European grape varieties Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. From the beginning the concept has been a small estate vineyard (currently about 10 acres) and an artisan wine cellar focusing on a few dry varietal table wines. Over the years, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grünerveltliner have been added to the vineyard. Read less

The faintest waft of marshmallow lends a pleasantly confectionery note to stone-fruit and blossom aromas on this dry, medium-bodied Riesling. The palate is elegant with brisk herbal tones and zesty lime acidity.
