"The 2020 Riesling Ice Wine was picked on January 20, 2020, at 15 degrees, and bottled in June 2020. It comes in with 11.8% alcohol, 198 grams of sugar and 9.7 of total acidity. This, the winery is proud to point out, is a "true" ice winefrozen on the vine, not in a freezer. Keeping its sugar under control, this aromatic ice wine offers freshness, not just cloying fruit. It does have a somewhat darker flavor profile, perhaps even a hint of reduction. That should get better. All the while, it seems remarkably concentrated in mouthfeel. This is both delicious and beautifully structured. There's a long finish, full of flavor and surprisingly refreshing, relatively speaking. It should age quite well, probably better than indicated, but I am always conservative in such things. The price references a half bottle, from which this was tasted. There were 650 six-packs produced."

Wine Spectator 91
"Apricot and tangerine notes burst forth in this orange zestlaced dessert wine, finishing with a flash of honeycomb. Nicely done. Drink now through 2026. 325 cases made."
About 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."
