Lakewood Vineyards Borealis 2012

External Review:

An actual Concord Icewine. Pale pink/light brown in the glass, almost sherry color, it displays notes of strawberry on the nose backed with just a hint of the traditional "foxy" character found in lambrusca. Concentrated and sweet with just a bit of acidity to give it backbone, the taste is Concord jelly (surprise!) with some raspberry and blackberry. The finish is short and sweet. All in all it is quite an interesting wine that would spruce up a lot of desserts.

In 1951, Frank Stamp, DDS decided to quit dentistry in Maryland and try his hand at farming. The Stamp family moved to Lakewood Farm, a run-down peach and apple orchard on the west side of Seneca Lake. The next spring they started planting grapes. The original grapes planted were primarily Labrusca and French-American Hybrid varieties, which were favored by the large wineries and grape juice companies. In the mid-80's the family diversified to add some new hybrid varieties and Vinifera plantings. The commercial grape production continued for 36 years, until 1988 when Monty (Frank's son), Beverly and their children pressed the grapes for their first vintage. Today, with 70 acres of grapes planted, the farm is home to Lakewood Vineyards winery. The winery produces wines from all three families of grapes, offering a very diverse selection of wines. The vineyards have been maintained and expanded as the demands for varieties shift. Using a combination of cutting edge technology and traditional winemaking practices the Stamp family, working with a very dedicated staff, is committed to producing consistently high quality wines. The friendly retail room is open for tasting and sales daily. Read less
