Silver Thread Dry Riesling

Silver Thread Dry Riesling (750ml)

90 points
New York • 2016 • 750ml
The 2016 Dry Riesling comes in with seven grams of sugar, 7.4 grams of total acidity and 11.8% alcohol. About a third of this was sourced from the winery's own STV estate vineyard, with most of the rest from Doyle Fournier on Seneca and 13% Gridley Bluff Point, a high-elevation site on Keuka. Dry, but by no means austere, this is fresh, concentrated and nicely built, with a clean finish and lively demeanor. The mid-palate concentration soaks up the acidity and makes this very balanced as well as impressive. It's also a good value. It often seemed to me to outperform the pricier single-vineyard STV, although the styles are certainly different and the STV redeemed itself (and probably surpassed this) in time. As that wine aired and warmed, it came into its own and demonstrated its quality. But if you're flipping a coin over the style, this is certainly a better value. Easy to drink on its own, it will also hold up to blander foods quite well. This is very well done. 90 Points Wine Advocate#91 on Marketview's 2018 Top 100
