Nagy-Somlói Juhfark

Really easy to like. Dusty stone dominates the nose with hints of pear and quince. Palate follows with the same mineral driven structure with stones and saline leading into a beautiful and zesty pear and lemon with hints of spice. Kind of feels like Muscadet on steroids. — 5 months ago

Fresh flowers, dark fruits, bubble gum on the nose. Medium tannins give nice structure, there’s good length, great balance, beguiling effervesence, everything in place. More savory than fruity with engaging green flavors from whole bunch pressing. Exactly what an excellent “domain” blaufrankisch (kékfrankos) ought to be. — 2 months ago

Juhfark 2013

Alder Yarrow

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! — a year ago
