Wine Spectator – Finger Lakes Passes Another Test in 2015

Finger Lakes Passes Another Test in 2015, 2/28/17

Silver Thread…produced excellent Rieslings in 2015.

Quote from Shannon Brock of Silver Thread: “Our consensus on the 2015 Rieslings is that they are broad on the palate. There is a mouthfilling quality to them that runs through the dry, medium-dry and medium-sweet styles. We think this is due to the warm September weather that lowered acids and built ripe flavors.”

It’s clear that Finger Lakes producers can produce quality under myriad conditions. These wines merit the full attention of consumers who appreciate generally dry, freshly styled aromatic whites and more.
