Oremus is one of the most well-known wineries in Tokaji. The property was acquired by the Alvarez family in 1993, the family that owns Vega Sicilia in Spain.
Mandolás wine, made from the grape variety Furmint, has evolved since its first vintage in 2001 until reaching vintage 2016, which is by far, the best release ever. A series of improvements have been taking place in all of its processes, from the vineyard up to its release to market. 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 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.
Macadamia nuts, lime and sliced green apple. Super fresh, tangy and vibrant with mouthwatering acidity carrying the nutty palate. Crisp and bright finish.
