2018 Oremus - Mandolás Furmint (90 points) @temposvegasicilia ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Furmint from the Tokaj wine region of Hungary. The grapes are hand-picked from a vineyard selection that is 200 m asl, which allows the grapes to ripen without the impact of Botrytis. The wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks, then aged in neutral Hungarian oak barrels for 6-8 months. The wine does receive some bâtonnage while in the barrel. 👁 Medium lemon color. 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of candle wax, cut yellow apple, almost ripe apricot, Asian pear, copper penny, salted peanut, dandelion, and chrysanthemum. 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (13.5%), and medium body. The palate shows more salinity and minerality than the nose. A medium length finish of candle wax, copper penny, and bitter dandelion. 🔔 Furmint can make such interesting dry wines that come across like an imaginary crossing of Chenin Blanc and Riesling. This wine is flavorful without being fruity or spicy. The best word to describe the style would be mineral. The palate shows flavors of wax, salt, and flowers in spades, but everything is balanced. I enjoy a wine that makes you think and try to understand it. #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #oremus #furmint #tokaj #tokaji #tokajiwine #sz áraz #vegasicilia
