Boundary Breaks No. 239 New York Riesling

$ 19.99

Winemaker Notes

#86 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2021

Every year, Boundary Breaks aims to make a fruit-driven, dry Riesling which has an explosive flavor profile. This dry Riesling is more “finesse” and less "power." It has the unmistakable weight and depth that are the hallmark of the #239 Dry Riesling.

 

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Dry Riesling No. 239 comes in with eight grams of residual sugar, 7.8 of total acidity and 12.5% alcohol. There were 2,750 cases produced from vines planted in 2009, 2010 and 2017. Tight, transparent and pure, this elegant Riesling shows off lifted fruit and a lean but precise finish. A bit mute in its youth, this is going to need a year, at least, to open and blossom. It should hold well for a decade or more thereafter. It was surprisingly understated just now, but I think it will eventually be a contender for best in the brand.

A bright, floral style, with lots of honeysuckle and acacia notes leading the way for lemon peel and yellow apple fruit flavors, followed by a zingy finish. Drink now through 2024.
