Neon orange wine woot!!! A ton of apricot action and I love that it has depth at value. I’m in on this always! — 9 months ago
I quite like this wine… the color is exceptional, almost neon! It’s a fresh young wine, the epitome of glou glou. Think Gamay. The 2017 vintage is the shit. — a year ago

There is really only one grape variety that I know of in the world that deserves to always have an exclamation mark: Juhfark! Or as I like to shout, Juhfaaaaaaaark! (pronounced you-fark). Grown only on the tiny little hill of Somló, an ancient underwater volcano, in Southwestern Hungary, it is among my favorite grape varieties and simply one of the world’s coolest wines. @sap_somlo is one of the best producers of it, coaxing out its bee pollen and chamomile scents and electric neon lemon, citrus peel, and yellow herb flavors, all layered on top of the deep volcanic minerality. The longer you let these wines age, the more they taste like rocks. Tired of the same old flavors in your white wines? Get thee some Juhfark! — 8 months ago

Cloudy yellow of old bones crowns the roiling trove. This one came in costume, as a peel reveals the sour ‘neon shades’ of its former life. Nelson Sauvin, you rascal! Prickly pear flavor suspended in a mucilaginous grapefruit, pomegranate, and lemon oil jell-o. Thin skin orange with pith, salty lime, peppery green grapes, and pine. Can’t quite put a finger on what makes this so dang enjoyable, but there it is. Sparkly, minerally, for sure, but tropical with crystalline pineapple, like a rocky wood that ends on a tropical beach. Eco-dichotomy. .
