Winemaker Notes

For many wine lovers, there are Rieslings that are “too dry”, and

Rieslings that are “too sweet”. The Ovid Line North Riesling is

made to be “not-too-dry” and “not-too-sweet”. Some would call

this Boundary Breaks' “Goldilocks” Riesling. It is “just right.”

The Riesling grape offers plenty of acidity. A small amount of residual sugar in the finished wine can rein in the effects of acidity and round out the experience of the wine. For the Ovid Line North Riesling, Boundary Breaks aims to stop fermentation with just enough residual sugar to please people who prefer some “roundness” in their Riesling.

Additionally, a small amount of residual sugar will amplify the fruit characteristics in the wine. As with all of its Rieslings, the winery tries to achieve maximum ripeness for the fruit that is used in this wine. That ripeness conveys tropical flavors, which, along with the acidity that is still present in the wine, yields balance and complexity.

Riesling is one of the world’s most food-friendly wines. As Rieslings are made with slightly more residual sugar, they will begin to “cool off” spicier foods and stand up to heavier foods. The Ovid Line North Riesling is made to be served with almost any meal. The only preparation that might be inadvisable to pair with this Riesling is a dish made with tomato sauce. The acidity of tomatoes and the acidity of this Riesling will not mesh well.

This riesling shows its slight sweetness in texture more than flavor. It’s rich, chewy and creamy, with golden-apple notes that finish crisp and focused. Pour it with roasted eggplant slathered with toum, the pungent Lebanese garlic sauce. Best Buy

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.

Finger Lakes Wine

New York, U.S.

View all products

As the most historic wine-producing region in New York state, winemaking in the Finger Lakes area dates back to the 1820s and today as a region, accounts for 90% of the state’s total wine production.

Its narrow and deep lakes created by the movement of Ice Age glaciers create an environment similar to the classic Riesling-loving regions of Europe, namely Germany and Austria. The Finger Lakes retain summer heat that incidentally warms up cold winter air, making it fall down from the lakes’ steep slopes. When spring comes, the lakes, already cooled by cold winter weather, stave off vine budding until the danger of frost has subsided. The main lakes of the zone, that is those big enough to moderate the climate in this way, are the focal points of prime vineyard areas. They include Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca and Cayuga.

While Riesling has fueled most of the region’s success, today Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc enjoy some attention.
