  • Alcohol %
A rich and elegant wine made from our oldest estate vines in an outstanding vintage. Barrel fermented and aged in partial new oak in honor of the winery's 30th Anniversary.


Barrel fermented and aged sur lie for 10 months in 50% new French oak and 50% in 20-year-old French oak. Barrels were stirred every two weeks during aging. Full malolactic fermentation. Bottled in August 2021. Our Chardonnay vines were planted in 1984 on shallow, shale-heavy soil uphill from the winery. The vineyard is farmed using biointensive practices, a form of organic, regenerative farming that uses chemical disease control as a last resort. In 2020, the vineyard inputs were 95% organic. Aromas of melon, lemon peel, and mandarin orange with flavors of sweet vanilla, toasted coconut, and lemon curd. Full body with a broad and creamy texture, and a long toasty finish. Drink now or cellar 5-8 years.

Silver Thread Estate Vineyard

Brand for Silver Thread Vineyard
Silver Thread Vineyard was established in 1982 on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, the most highly regarded microclimate in New York's Finger Lakes wine district. Wine production began in 1991 with the varieties Riesling and Chardonnay, later adding Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer and Cabernet Franc.

Critically-acclaimed winemaker Paul Brock and wine educator Shannon Brock assumed ownership of the boutique estate winery in 2011. We create expressive, age-worthy wines in harmony with nature.

The vineyard is managed with sustainable farming practices, relying on naturally occurring and biodegradable spray materials.

The turtle image on our label was carved in a rock beside one of New York’s woodland creeks by a Native American artist many centuries ago. As an earth symbol to the Iroquois people, the turtle reminds us to care for the land and water that give us the gift of wine.
