Grapes for this wine are grown on the bluff of Keuka Lake by Donna and Louis Gridley. This vineyard is only 8 years old (the youngest used by Silver Thread) and is only one acre. It is the highest elevation site we use, 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.
Extremely limited– 48 cases produced.
