Mandolás Furmint is a young, fruity wine with a fresh nose and aroma, yet it has body and speaks with a lively
Mandolás, made from the grape variety Furmint, has evolved since its first vintage in 2000 until reaching vintage 2019. A series of improvements have been taking place in all of its processes, from the vineyard up to its release to market, coexisting in perfect harmony, the most modern winemaking with an ancestral tradition.
In the vineyard we have conducted specific plot selection with an adequate planting density, deeply caring for the grape ́s maturity level, in order to attain an optimal healthy golden ripe cluster selection. The effort to select old Furmint clones (sourced from the more than 50 years old Petrács vineyard) also helps to improve the quality of Mandolás from vintage to vintage.
The manually harvested bunches are gently pressed and fermentation takes place 50 % in new Hungarian oak barrels and 50 % in stainless steel tanks. 70 % of the wine is aged in oak barrels for 3 months stirring up the lees every week (“batonnage”) and for another 3 months in complete peace.
