Boundary Breaks No. 239 Riesling 2016
|Region||United States, New York, Finger Lakes|
We pick the fruit for our Dry Riesling when it reaches a very ripe level in mid- to late-October. At this level of ripeness, the fruit possesses dense, tropical flavors. It is rare to find such flavors in a dry Finger Lakes Riesling. We use only fruit from Riesling clone #239 for this wine. Not all Riesling vines are identical and the different genetic strains are referred to as "clones". In our vineyard site, clone #239 allows us to achieve an ideal combination of ripeness and acidity.
Quite tasty, showing juicy apple and quince flavors that end with a friendly, plump feel on the finish, but are supported by fresh acidity along the way. Drink now through 2019. 1,250 cases made.
