The Kolonics family winery located on the slope of Somló Hill, an impressively towering basalt block in West Hungary, uses Hungarian grape varieties and a traditional method of 6-12 hours of soaking on the skins followed by pressing. The fermentation is exclusively done in wooden barrels, and then the wines are matured in oak and acacia barrels for a minimum of one year.
Category-winner wine: Somlói Juhfark 2015
A clear, straightforward classical Somló wine with a good acid finish. It has salty and mineral finishing notes, while being round and balanced. It is still at the beginning of its course and only starting to show its real strengths. The secondary and tertiary aromas typical of Somló are already showing.
