2013 Juhfark "J13" (Meinklang)

Meinklang, Juhfark "J13", Somló, Hungary 2013

100% Juhfark

DECADENT PEAR-LIKE RICHNESS, LEMON CUSTARD, RIVER ROCK MINERALITY

We are always excited to uncork the unique and compelling biodynamic wines from Meinklang, and this delightfully rare Juhfark from their Hungarian vineyards is no exception. Juhfark means "sheep's tail" in Hungarian, a reference to the distinctive shape of the vine's grape clusters. The grape is typically grown in the Somló region of Northwestern Hungary and blended with other regional grapes to produce rich, age-worthy whites. This single-variety version is a lovely golden hue and offers rich aromas of pear, golden raisin, and rocky minerality. The palate is likewise opulent, with a full body, medium-high acid, and a somewhat savory finish.

Serving Suggestion: Sweet potato ravioli w/ mushrooms & kale. Roasted pork shank w/ mustard-sherry glaze & parsley.

2016 Somlo White (Meinklang)

Meinklang, "Somlo White", Somló, Hungary 2016

{biodynamic} 50% Harslevelu, 20% Juhfark, 20% Olaszriesling, 10% Furmint

BRIGHT TROPICAL FRUIT & YELLOW PLUMS, LIME ZEST, FLORAL

The slopes of Hungary’s extinct Somló volcano are a wonderful, wild place to grow exquisite white wines - and in fact, that’s all they grow. Given their proximity to the volcano, it’s no wonder that Werner and Angela Michlits decided to grow a little something of their own. This blend of native Hungarian grapes showcases everything wonderful about Hungarian white wine - aromas of linden flowers and honeysuckle, full of citrusy tropical fruit, melon, lime zest, green apple, and yellow plum. It’s rich, and almost creamy, but balanced by bright acid, peppery spice, and a clean mineral flavor that will appeal to lovers of Grüner Veltliner and oaked Chardonnay alike.

Serving suggestion: A salad of greens & herbs tossed in mandarin orange vinaigrette w/ Roquefort cheese & candied walnuts. Potatoes, leeks, & broccoli, roasted & topped w/ molten Raclette.
