Our Notes: One of the most unique traditions in Somló is the belief that drinking its wines before copulation would guarantee a boy. “Nászéjszakák bora” or “wedding wine” was soon the favored wine of the Hapsburgs in order to keep the Monarchy in full swing. A blend of Juhfark, Hárslevelű, and Furmint, it blends the fruit, flowers, salt, and smoke of Somló into one bottle. Orange blossom aromatics, enough weight to handle heavier sauces, and persistent acidity make it great with fish and pork alike. Whether family planning or not, this is both a great introduction to this appellation as well as István Spiegelberg. 2230 bottles produced.

92 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine István Spiegelberg blends Hungary's three greatest white wine grapes—juhfark, hárslevelű, and furmint— for this opulent white. Fermented spontaneously in 500-liter Hungarian oak casks and held in cask for another year or so before bottling, this is rich as marzipan, with hárslevelű's delicate florals playing over top. The light herbal notes and vibrant acidity keep it lifted enough to enjoy on its own, or with fish in a cream sauce.
