Continental (hot summers & cold winters)
Clay on top of volcanic bedrock
One week on the skins, aged in oak
Notes & Pairings
Up until tasting this wine, all the Juhfarks we’d encountered were from the Basalt crumble soils of Somló and the similarly volcanic Northern shore of Lake Balaton in Hungary. They either had lengthy élevage with botrytis, or were pure free run made fresh. This is a whole other side of Juhfark. One week on the skins, little to no Botrytis, all oak, but still released fresh. This is more on the tea spectrum than fruit, great acidity, more creamy weight than tannic, and dry.
