The region’s signature grape variety is juhfark, and Somló is the only place where this white grape – named after the sheep-tail shape of the bunch – is grown in meaningful quantities.
Golden colour. Yellow fruit, a little nutty, with a subtle spice, aniseed and floral top note. It’s has richness, but it’s kind of light too; a wine of contrasts. Distinctly saline with a firm core of ultra ‘mineral’ acidity through its nuts, sour apple cider and peach, a discreet fresh pineapple thing too. It’s chalky and a little dusty, and has a long dry briny finish. Such wonderful texture here. - The Wine Front
