Winemaker Notes

Ice Wine is made from grapes left out in the vineyard to dehydrate, which causes the juices to become very concentrated. This fruit is picked when the temperatures are 15 degrees Fahrenheit or below. At these low temperature the remaining water in the juice turns into ice. When they press these frozen grapes the water stays behind in the press as ice. This yields an even more concentrated grape essence which we make into this wine.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Riesling Ice Wine is naturally frozen on the vine. It comes in at 229 grams per liter of residual sugar and 9.4% alcohol. Big, unctuous and mouth-coating, this has a rush of fruit to the palate, pungent aromatics and solid mid-palate. For all of its concentration and size, it is very fresh, with an underlying core of acidity that enlivens the wine and keeps it from being cloying. It is very a fine Ice Wine effort. It may yet be entitled to an uptick if it holds and develops well.

Wine Enthusiast
Bitter orange rind and spice notes accent layers of sweet honey, pineapple and mango in this lusciously sweet, silky ice wine. Strikes of lemon-lime acidity add zest and vibrance through a long, lingering finish. Editors' Choice.

Boundary Breaks Winery Image
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.

Increasingly garnering widespread and well-deserved attention, New York ranks third in wine production in the United States (after California and Washington). Divided into six AVAs—the Finger Lakes, Lake Erie, Hudson River, Long Island, Champlain Valley of New York and the Niagara Escarpment, which crosses over into Michigan as well as Ontario, Canada—the state experiences varied climates, but in general summers are warm and humid while winters are very cold and can carry the risk of frost well into the growing season.

The Finger Lakes region has long been responsible for some of the country’s finest Riesling, and is gaining traction with elegant, light-bodied Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Experimentation with cold-hardy European varieties is common, and recent years have seen the successful planting of grapes like Grüner Veltliner and Saperavi (from the Eastern European country of Georgia). Long Island, on the other hand, has a more maritime climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, and shares some viticultural characteristics with Bordeaux. Accordingly, the best wines here are made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Niagara Escarpment is responsible for excellent ice wines, usually made from the hybrid variety, Vidal.

Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
