In my opinion, Finger Lakes Rieslings are some of the most interesting and captivating Rieslings in all of North America. For this Semi-Dry Riesling, we stopped fermentation to allow the fruit to shine”
– Shannon Brock, Co-Owner & Winemaker
Semi-dry Riesling is a strategic blend of grapes from our own vineyard and a trusted grower-partner. Our 36-year- old, biologically-farmed vineyard perched on the edge of Seneca Lake provides minerality and elegance (13% STV Estate Vineyard). Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard sits high above Keuka Lake on a mix of loose shale and loam and contributes intense aromatics and tropical fruit (87%).
ABOUT SILVER THREAD VINEYARD
Owner-winemakers Paul and Shannon Brock represent the new generation of young winemakers propelling the Finger Lakes region to prominence. At the helm of Silver Thread since 2011, the couple has shepherded the estate winery (est. in 1982) 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.
