Looking for a white wine for your Thanksgiving meal? Here's a great lesser-known alternative from the Tokaj (tok-eye) region in Hungary. Made from the Furmint grape, this is truly an under-appreciated variety. And while many of the wine made here are quite sweet, today we have an absolutely lovely dry example.
The Tokaj legend has grown and grown in its four-hundred years of history; but it was not until 1630 that the greatness of the Oremus vineyard was first spoken of. Today it is the one which receives greatest universal acclaim.
Mandolas presents us with perfect richness and fine aromas, combined with a fresh natural acidity. It is the result of a unique climate and soil in a world, that demands a laborious and careful production. The legend of Mandolas continues.
Produced and Bottled by Tokaj-Oremus LTD.
We first reviewed the 2017 vintage of this wine last year and loved it, let's check out how the 2018 compares.
The 2018 Oremus Mandolas Furmint from Vega Sicilia begins with an aromatic and harmonious bouquet of lemon, lime, green apple, a touch of tropical fruit and just a hint of a spicy herbal note.
Taking a sip reveals an incredibly tasty wine that goes incredibly well with all kinds of foods including everything on the typical Thanksgiving table. Rich, vibrant fruit with great depth of flavor combines with a touch of spiciness in this balanced, very pleasurable wine.
Crisp with some salty minerality woven throughout, it ends with a dry, very long and quite savory finish.
