"The goal for our 2018 Cabernet Franc is to highlight how expressive and fruit-forward a Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc can be based on optimal vineyard practices. These vineyard practices enable us to produce uncommonly ripe fruit in a cool climate, which yields a structured, full-bodied wine. The resulting 2018 Cabernet Franc is very lively, with great acidity and balance. In addition, our goal is to make an outstanding Cabernet Franc at a price point that is affordable for a larger consumer audience."~Winery Notes
Boundary BreaksView all from Boundary Breaks
"Boundary Breaks is a vineyard located on the east side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes AVA of New York. In 2007, owner Bruce Murray purchased a 120-acre farm that had been in the same family since 1850. Murray's goal was to develop a vineyard that could yield Finger Lakes Rieslings that were comparable to some of the great Rieslings of Germany and Alsace. The vineyard site is exceptional. There are 70 acres of open farmland that had previously been planted to row crops like corn and soybeans. The soils are characterized as "Cazenovia Silt Loam" which is tested at an optimal pH typical of calcareous soils. These soils are considered ideal for producing complex aromatic white wines. The focus for Boundary Breaks is exclusively Riesling. There are four wines that are made in four different styles ranging from bone dry to medium sweet. The styles also utilize different clones of Riesling. The focus and dedication of the project is a revelation in the region and one which is helping redefine the potential in the the Finger Lakes AVA."
