Silver Thread Riesling “Doyle Fournier Vineyard” 2020 – 91

Silver Thread Riesling “Estate Vineyard” 2020 – 89

Silver Thread Dry Riesling 2020 – 89   Tasting Notes: Perfumed aromas of apple, jasmine, and crushed stone drive the nose. There’s a roundness to the light-bodied palate, where juicy pome and stone fruit flavors hold court alongside a dry, pithy finish.Alexander Peartree

Wine Spectator-Online 2021

Silver Thread Dry Riesling 2020 – 89

Tasting Notes: Yellow apple, fennel, and yellow plum notes are well-aligned, backed by a tangy mineral note underscoring the finish. Sneaky long too with an echo of jasmine. Drink now through 2023. — JM


Silver Thread Riesling Semi-dry 2019 – 89

Tasting Notes: A friendly style, with a mix of anise, apple, and quince notes, backed by fresh acidity. The plump-edged finish flirts with an off-dry feel. Drink now through 2022.  — JM
