Silver Thread Vineyard
More from this Producer
Aromas of honeysuckle, peach, quince and pineapple. Intense fruity flavors are well-balanced with crisp acidity. Long and juicy finish with flinty mineral aftertaste. Drink now or cellar for 5-8 years.
Ripe and vibrant aromas of citrus and melon lead to a rounded palate of honey and peach with moderate acidity. A subtle spiciness with hints of stone lingers on the finish. Fruity enough to be a cocktail wine, but dry enough to serve with a wide variety of foods. Drink now to enjoy this wine’s youthful vitality. A dry, fruity, aromatic blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and NY-45 (a locally-adapted hybrid). This wine experienced native fermentation.
Our 100% estate grown Riesling is the most special wine produced at Silver Thread. It captures the pure, distinct flavor of our site and is unmistakably original. Bio-intensive growing practices encourage intense expression of vineyard character. An ideal candidate for cellaring, this wine will unfold and become more complex with bottle age.
100% estate grown Blackbird was barrel aged for 10 months and is made from our best red grapes. Grapes were hand-harvested at optimal ripeness from our 15-year-old lakeside vineyard that is farmed using bio-intensive viticulture. The result is elegant, complex and earthy, with excellent length and ageability. 160 cases were produced. 80% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot.
Fresh cherry and cranberry aromas with hints of flowers and dried herbs. Youthful and fruity with medium body, soft texture and light tannins.
