ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Somlói Vándor Nagy-Somlói Juhfark

Somlói Vándor Nagy-Somlói Juhfark is salty and mineral-driven, with white pepper, smoke, and golden apples on the nose and mouth. Great lively acidity. Spontaneous fermentation in 500 L used Hungarian and French oak, and aging in barrels on the fine lees for 11 months. Certified organic, low sulfites added. Juhfark is native to Somló, Hungary’s smallest appellation in western Hungary. Somló is famous for its distinctively fiery terroir; the soil is clay, sand, loess, and volcanic basalt rock, and these flavors are strikingly pronounced in the delicate, thin-skinned Juhfark grape.

About Somlói Vándor

After receiving his winemaking diploma in Eger, Tamás Kis acquired a tiny property in the Hungarian wine region of Somló in 2010. It was here that he began his love affair with the magical hill. For years he worked for large prestigious wineries in Eger but would still travel several times a week to his winery on Somló, and this was the inspiration for his winery name — Somlói Vándor, or the “Somlói Wanderer.” Today he continues to live up to his name, regularly traveling between his winery in Somló and his wife Dorottya’s winery, Bussay Pince, in Zala.

Somló is Hungary’s smallest wine appellation, famous for its volcanic soils and the rich, fiery wines made there. It was long believed that the wines of Somló had special medicinal properties. Today Tamás makes organic wines from his small estate, comprised of vines that range between 8 and 50+ years old. The soil is black basalt-rich loess with clay and sand.

About Juhfark

Juhfark is a Hungarian white wine grape variety that is usually blended with other indigenous grapes to produce off-dry white wine. The name Juhfark, meaning sheep’s tail, refers to the vine’s distinctive, dangling grape clusters that are considerably longer than they are wide.

Jurfark is primarily grown in the Somló region of northwest Hungary. The volcanic soils here help Juhfark wines take on strong mineral flavors, backed by good acidity and secondary notes of citrus blossom. The wines are not overly fruity but are instead rich and occasionally salty. The best examples can easily age for five or more years.
