Riesling

Food pairings: dry versions go well with fish, chicken and pork dishes. The crispiness of a Riesling works very well with tuna and salmon while the acidity level intermingles with the slight smokiness of the eel and cuts through the layers of spicier Japanese foods. Districts: the classic German grape of the Rhine and Mosel, riesling grows in all wine regions. Germany's great Rieslings are usually made slightly sweet, with steely acidity for balance. Riesling from Alsace and the Eastern U.S. is also excellent, though usually made in a different style, equally aromatic but typically drier (not sweet). California Rieslings are much less successful, usually sweet without sufficient acidity for balance. Typical taste in varietal wine: Riesling wines are much lighter than Chardonnay wines. The aromas generally include fresh apples. The riesling variety expresses itself very differently depending on the district and the winemaking. Rieslings should taste fresh. If they do, then they might also prove tastier and tastier as they age.

    Silver Thread Dry Riesling

    $21.94

    Wine Spectator 90 "A light, pure and persistent white, with jicama, honeysuckle and talc notes racing along, backed by lingering floral and lemon pulp hints. Drink now through 2015. 600 cases made. –JM" " Silver Thread Vineyard was established in 1982 on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, at the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region. At this location the bottom of the lake drops almost 200 feet below sea level, a dramatic mass of water that creates a distinct microclimate on the leeward (eastern) hillside — cooling breezes in summer, radiating warmth through the winter, and extending the length of the growing season. On this hillside 250 years ago the Iroquois people tended huge peach orchards, a testament to this temperate ‘island’ within a cool region. The turtle image on our label was carved in a rock beside one of New York’s woodland creeks by a Native American artist many centuries ago. As an earth symbol to the Iroquois people, the turtle reminds us to care for the land and water that give us the gift of wine. Silver Thread’s seven-acre vineyard and ecologically-designed wine cellar were established by organics enthusiast and author Richard Figiel. Since the late 1980’s, the vineyard has followed the principles of sustainable farming. We use mulch, compost and cover crops instead of chemical fertilizers to provide our vines with a healthy, living soil. This strengthens the link between the wine and its terroir, the special character of its site. Our energy-efficient tasting room and wine cellar building, built in 1995, is set into the hillside for natural temperature control and to take advantage of gravity flow in the winemaking process. Water is also gravity fed to the winery from a spring next to the vineyard. Besides gravity, wind-generated electricity purchased from the grid is our sole source of power. Natural cork, a renewable resource, and lightweight glass bottles are used to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging. Critically-acclaimed winemaker Paul Brock and wine educator Shannon Brock assumed ownership of Silver Thread Vineyard in 2011. Paul Brock has crafted a portfolio of intense and high-quality wines that are already well-received by Finger Lakes wine aficionados. General Manager Shannon Brock, who has been a leader in the hospitality industry in the Finger Lakes for the past several years, is putting her expertise to work to create an outstanding tasting room experience. Silver Thread is staying true to its roots despite new ownership. It remains a boutique winery focused on sustainable viticulture and premium estate wines. Production is currently 2,200 cases per year. Wines are available for sale at the tasting room, via mail order, in select stores and restaurants throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Silver Thread’s vineyard, wine cellar and tasting room are located ¾ mile off Route 414 (the wine trail) in a quiet and naturally beautiful environment. The vineyard and tasting room overlook Seneca Lake. Well-educated and relatively serious wine buyers who care about local and sustainable products will enjoy discovering our off-the-beaten-path location and expressive wines that reflect the terroir of the Finger Lakes.

    2011 Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett

    $24.94

    The Wine Advocate: 87 points Brought-up entirely in tank so as to promote freshness and citricity, Loosen’s 2010 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Alte Reben Grosses Gewachs is scented with site-typical sassafras, mint, lemon, and orange, which indeed to go on to give a brightly citric, relatively juicy, and invigoratingly pungent palate performance.

I would anticipate this being best drunk over the next several years and not appreciably shedding bitterness; but I shall of course be pleasantly surprised to be proved wrong. Learn More
