Grapes for this wine are grown on the bluff of Keuka Lake by Donna and Louis Gridley. This vineyard was planted in 2003 (the youngest used by Silver Thread) and is only a few acres. It is one of the highest elevation sites in the Finger Lakes, and faces east-southeast for maximum sunlight interception. Intense peach fruitiness and a touch of green characterize this not-to-be-missed Riesling that shows originality and flair. Medium dry.
Sample this Riesling alongside its sisters–Riesling Estate Vineyard and Riesling Doyle Fournier Vineyard–for the ultimate Finger Lakes Riesling experience.
