Boundary Breaks “Ovid Line North” Riesling 2016: $13 Good+

The Boundary Breaks Vineyard “Ovid Line North” Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) $13 [Good+] is a soft quaffable Riesling that shows the heat of the vintage.  Labeled “medium dry,” it registers as “medium sweet”.  Serve cold, with snacks.

Medium lemon in color, the BB shows medium intense aromas of peach, pear, tangerine, bitter citrus zest, a waxy note, and soil.  The aromas become more tropical with air.  Medium bodied, medium sweet, soft, with low acidity, balance is good.  Flavors of peach, pear, pineapple, citrus and dusty earth have a light salty/bitter streak.  The finish is of-a-piece, with good length.  July 2017
