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-litre small barrels, which are typical of the region.
Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - Decanter: A steady transformation from the first vintage of 2000. A lively wine with aromas of fennel, white flowers and honey. The palate is fresh with lime leaf and a mineral edge. There’s a light oak complexity from part fermentation in Hungarian oak, followed by part ageing for six months. The growing intensity and complexity of the vintages shows the continued work in recuperating old Furmint clones.
91 Points - James Suckling:
"Macadamia nuts, lime and sliced green apple. Super fresh, tangy and vibrant with mouthwatering acidity carrying the nutty palate. Crisp and bright finish. Drink now." - (April 28, 2022)
