Winemaker Notes

#92 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2020

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.

Critical Acclaim

D92
Decanter

Gloriously refined. Bright, fresh attack with notes of lime and stone minerality. Limpid, pure, saline. Altogether an original. Furmint at its most precise, with clear Burgundian character.

WS90
Wine Spectator
A ripe and juicy note of Jonagold apple is layered with hints of beeswax, chive blossom and almond skin in this well-cut, medium-bodied white, which is lightly chalky in texture, with a saline-laced finish.
