Boundary Breaks No. 239 Riesling 2020
|Region||United States, New York, Finger Lakes|
For this dry Riesling, we aim to produce a wine that has distinct, bright acidity yet also delivers ripe, luscious fruit on the mid-palate and finish. Dry Rieslings, for some people, are simply too austere. They lack the beautiful, often tropical Riesling flavors that arise from harvesting fully-ripe fruit in the vineyard. For our Dry Riesling #239, we seek to achieve maximum ripeness in the vineyard. This allows us to create a bright, crackling Dry Riesling that also has intense tropical fruit characteristics. Riesling is one of the world's most food-friendly wines. Dry Rieslings tend to have a more angular and "structured" feel. They can pair very well with creamier foods or other dense preparations like fried chicken or fish. This Dry Riesling #239 has the body and weight to stand up to nearly any white meat, whether pork, chicken or seafood.
Fresh and sleek in feel, with pear, yellow apple and honeysuckle notes streaming through. Reveals nice underlying tension on the finish. Drink now. 1,175 cases made.
