"Complex nose of crisp pear, yellow apple and fresh herbs. Medium-bodied with quite a dry balance for a wine that belongs in the semi-dry category, this has plenty of fruit and a pronounced wet stone character at the clean and precise finish. Drink or hold."

"We refer to this wine as reserve because it comes from a portion of our vineyard where we have thinned the fruit on the vines. By reducing the amount of fruit on a vine, we increase the ability of that vine to ripen the remaining fruit. We picked our fruit a bit earlier to mimic a German kabinett style, which enabled us to achieve the rich, full flavors in this wine while retaining a significant amount of acidity. For a sweeter Riesling this wine is perfectly balanced and a perfect pairing with spicy Asian food."~Winery Notes
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."
