Our Notes: Sorry, sold out!
Furmint, Hungary's premier white grape variety, grows mainly in Tokaj - and in the smallest appellation in the country, in Somlo. Hungarian/German wine maker Istvan/Stephan Spiegelberg is a magician with this grape. You'll have to taste to believe. Spiegelberg transfers the vulcanic minerals of Somlo directly into the flavors of the wine. Note: of each of the three or four wines he produces, there are only a handful of bottles. We received a total of 120 bottles of this wine for the entire United States of America!

91 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine: “This furmint fairly rumbles with volcanic energy, a dark mineral strength that adds a ruddy, ferrous blush and firmness to its roasted peach fruit. It's ripe and peppery, a powerful wine for mangalitsa pork, roasted until melting.
