Tasted at the DeVino wine bar in Budapest. Made from the Juhfark grape on the Somlo Hill in Hungary. Silvery/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is bright with lanolin, minerals/wet rocks and slight citrus note. Viscous. On the palate, this is drier than a previous vintage (2018) I had tried. Lemon/citrus and minerals on the panels. Good, not bracing acidity. Long finish. This seems much more polished than the 2018 although both are enjoyable. This drinks well on its own and will work well with all but the heaviest foods. Stuffed cabbages would be a nice choice.
Made from the Juhfark grape on the Somlo hill near Lake Balaton in Hungary. Silvery green/gold in color. The nose has pears, smoke (it is grown in volcanic soil), slight soapy note and an herbal note. On the palate, this is semi-sweet with apples and honey notes. It has a tart green apple streak on the finish. This improved with air and definitely needs some food to counter the acidic bite. Drink over the next five years. It worked well with soft cheeses and will work with most lighter foods.
My first time trying the Juhfark (pronounced YOU-fahrk) grape. The term refers to the elongated shape of the grape bunches.
