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."

James Suckling 90 "This is the "basic" bottling from Boundary Breaks, made only in part from estate fruit, but it has a full apple and blackcurrant bouquet that's juicy and just off-dry with good length and a very clean finish."  "Whiffs of herbs and green florals persist from start to finish on

James Suckling 93 "Although this is still a bit closed, it has the same kind of exotic aromas (mango!) as the previous two vintages and the same kind of power and concentration too. The racy acidity easily keeps the 13.5% alcohol in check, and the finish has a stunning mineral freshness. Drink from
