2015 Meinklang Somlo White, 750ml

Availability: In stock (5)

White wine from a blend of native Hungarian the varieties Hárslevelű, Furmint, and Juhfark. Don't worry, you don't need to pronounce them to enjoy them. Somlo has volcanic soils that are ideal for viticulture and bring a strong minerality to the wines. A bi-national operation with grapes coming from both Hungary and Austrian, Meinklang makes biodynamically certified wines of surprising value. 

From the mouth of the importer (Artisanal Cellars):

"From the Somlo region of Hungary, this is a typical Hungarian blend, much more complex than its price! Stone fruits mingle with a smoky, flinty understone, with a touch of herbal notes and a hint of white pepper on the very long finish. Versatile food wine and perfectly pleasant for sipping too! A great introduction to what Hungary has to offer.

The Michlits family runs the Meinklang farm which is a wide and varied Demeter-certified agricultural operation cultivating a number of different crops as well as raising 300 Angus cattle. The estate represents what used to be common practice everywhere in the Pannonian countryside: a mixed farming operation, managed by extended family. The wine estate is well integrated into the farm and lead by Angela and Werner Michlits."
