Description

Meinklang Somlo Vulkán #2 NV

Meinklang Somlo Vulkán #2 is a cool and funky pet nat. Perfumed nose of fresh herbs, elderflower, ripe green apples and lemon citrus. Thirst-quenching acidity and densely woven structure on the smooth palate. Crisp apple, pretty nectarine and lemon zest flavours are supported by a stoney minerality and persistent spiciness.

 

A blend of traditional Hungarian varietals with 60% Hárslevelű and 40% Juhfark. The fruit comes from Meinklang winery's plots of land in Somló, Hungary. An old single vineyard on ancient slopes that were once volcanoes and stand out in the middle of the famous plain called Puszta. Hárslevelü is very resistant, has an elegant character and a fruity profile capable of interpreting the mineral character of the soil. Juhfark, literally called "sheep's tail" because of the shape of its bunches, is considered one of the most prestigious Hungarian grapes.

Harvesting the fruit by hand. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. No filtering or fining before bottling.
