Boordy Vineyards of Maryland

Tango Peach
Honeyed aromas of peach, citrus, and melon are followed by an alluring sweet flavor with a hint of tartness.
Spiced Wassail
Sweet, hearty red wine blended with spices.  Serve heated to warm the soul on winter nights, or enjoyed chilled over ice to refresh the spirit.

Seyval/Vidal/Chardonnay

Description: Crisp, clean, and dry – but very approachable, with hints of tropical fruit in the nose (banana, pineapple), honeydew melon, and a suggestion of herbs. The “Rockfish” is our most versatile white wine: it is refreshing by itself, and it is an excellent companion to a wide range of foods, be it a casual picnic or a formal dinner.

Body: Light
Finish: Dry
Suggested foods: Caesar salad, béarnaise sauce, lemon flavored dishes, flounder, oysters Rockefeller, steamed mussels

SILVER
2012 Maryland Governor’s Cup Competition

Riesling

Description: Classic Riesling aromas of honeysuckle citrus and apricots are followed by mouth watering acidity that perfectly balances the wine’s sweetness.

Body: Light
Finish: 3% residual sweetness
Suggested foods: Indian and Asian cuisine, sushi, honey glazed ham, lemon chicken, baked beans, steamed crabs or shrimp

Wine Story: Riesling is best suited to cooler northerly growing regions. After growing Riesling in our Maryland vineyards for eighteen years, climate change got the better of us. We now import our riesling grapes from the best region in the United States for this sensitive variety: the Yakima Valley in Washington State (historical note: Boordy once had a branch winery there in the 1970’s). Riesling is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks using yeast strains that emphasize the variety’s extraordinary natural aromas. We chill the fermentation to stop it before completion to achieve the desired balance between sweetness and acidity, and bottle the wine at about six months to capture its alluring freshness

Pinot  Grigio

Description:  A white wine with a faintly copper hue, delicate aromas of grapefruit and pear, and a crisp mineral quality in the finish.

Body: Light

Aging: Stainless steel
Finish: Dry

SILVER MEDAL
2013 Winemaster’s Choice Awards

Vineyards & winemaking: Pinot Grigio is grown on the hill east of our winery where it thrives in well-drained schist soils. The tightly clustered grapes, with their exquisite bronze-purple coloration, naturally ripen early and are usually our first harvest of the season. The wine is made in stainless steel tanks, cool fermented to preserve delicate varietal aromas, and is bottled the following spring.  Limited production.
