Juhfark, which means 'Sheep's tail', is a rare grape variety found in the Balaton wine region of western Hungary. Carefully picked from grapes growing on the slopes of Somló Hill, this limited release of 6,000 bottles of Juhfark is the region's iconic wine. The grapes are gently pressed and fermented and matured in 1000L Hungarian oak. Further ageing is followed in tank. The result is a golden coloured wine with long legs and aromas of ripe peach, quince, and mango. On the palate it's fragrant with quince and pear, has a saline and long texture, and a warming finish.
Pairs beautifully with: Lamb cutlets, grilled pork loin, or aubergine dishes. For the adventurous, try the wine with offal.
Cheese pairing: Tomme de Savoie or Cornish Yarg.
