Boundary Breaks Riesling scores 93 points

Finger Lakes Riesling! 
Great Score!
2014 Boundary Breaks Riesling #198...$18.99
Pale straw with a green tint. A gorgeous, expressive nose of lemon juice, lime skin, passionfruit and wet slate introduces this wine. The palate positively sings, with delicate flesh draped across the lively and invigorating acidity. The finish starts strong and continues to build for quite some time. This wine is a star. 58 grams per liter residual sugar.

2014 Boundary Breaks Riesling #239...$15.99
Though the nose is a touch reserved, this wine comes alive on the palate with an intoxicating concentration of flavor. Upon some inspection, the bouquet reveals aromas of lemon juice, sea air, golden kiwi, and flint. The palate is somehow both expressive and tight at the same time—though it clearly possesses a big personality, one gets the impression that it could further blossom with some bottle age. The acidity is striking and quite fine, chiseling through the taut, citric fruit core. The finish is endless and quite chalky. A combination of the 2013’s nose with this palate would result in my ultimate fantasy Riesling. A wine for the cellar. 8 grams per liter of residual sugar.
