2017 Oremus Mandolas Dry Furmint
This wine's name comes from the old way of referring to the vineyard from where it comes. Mandolás is one of the Oremus vineyards and it is only planted with Furmint, the noblest grape variety of the region.
The Tokaj Oremus Mandolás, made from the grape variety Furmint, has evolved since its first vintage in 2001 and the 2016 is considered by far, the best release ever. A series of improvements have been taking place across all areas of production. In the vineyard a number of techniques have been implemented including specific plot selection in order to obtain an optimal healthy golden ripe cluster selection. At winery level, changes in new oak barrel toasting used in the fermentation process along with frequent and controlled batonages, restores the minerality of the volcanic soil, characteristic of the region.
The Mandolás 2016 offers perfect richness and fine aromas, combined with a fresh natural acidity. It is the result of a unique climate and soil in a world, that demands a laborious and careful production.
Furmint is a white grape variety grown primarily in Hungary and Slovakia and is the dominant grape variety in the production of Hungary's most famous vinous export.
Elegant and balanced, this straw colored dry Furmint has lemon curd, peach and apricot aromas, lemon zest and flaky pastry flavors and a creamy finish.
