Description: Mandolás is a surprising wine. Its essence is young, ground-breaking, revolutionary and not frightened to explore... and is able to enrich the winemaking tradition of a region as distinguished as Tokaj.
A different wine that has managed to break from the past, giving impetus to Tokaj's new present, where dry white wines, led by Mandolás, are proving to be ground-breaking.
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.
