It’s not always easy to know who made any individual wine at Boundary Breaks. They work with a few Finger Lakes winemakers and there isn’t any indication on the bottle or on their website which wines were made where, but Boundary Breaks Vineyard 2013 No. 239 Dry Riesling ($20) was made by Peter Bell at Fox Run Vineyards.
Flinty and citrus blossom notes bring a bit of complexity to a nose that is driven by sweet lemons and just-ripe peaches.
Citrusy and quite fruity and forward, the palate is juicy, with a bit of perceived sweetness even though it’s labeled “dry.” Sweet lemon candy and juicy peach flavors unwind as the wine warms just a bit. There is good focus here, but the acidity isn’t the the star — more juicy than nervy.
