The Tokaj Oremus Mandolás, made from the grape variety Furmint, has evolved since its first vintage in 2001. 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.
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.
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 variety of the region. During the weeks leading up to the harvest, the state of ripening of the grape is systematically checked and the golden yellow, health and ripe bunches are picked. A must with great density is obtained using a delicate and gentle pressing. Fermentation is in new wood barrels, which are carefully prepared, and takes between 8 and 12 days. The wine is aged in 136-liter small barrels, which are typical of the region.

Lemon, brioche and crushed stones on the nose, followed by a creamy, medium-bodied palate that’s cut through by a laser beam of high acidity. Textured, with a linear and mouthwatering finish.
