Description

Tempos Vega Sicilia Tokaj-Oremus Mandolás 2018

Pale yellow colour with green highlights. Aromas of green apples, lemon and apricot with a hint of oak and chalky minerals emerge on the nose. The concentrated and fruit-forward palate is layered with white fruits, citrus and mineral flavours. Elegant, fresh and youthful. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel, soft acidity and balanced structure. The finish is long, lingering and pure.

The 100% Furmint grapes go through a delicate and gentle pressing. Fermentation is in new Hungarian Oak barrels for 8–12 days. The wine ages in 136-litre small Hungarian Oak barrels.

Mandolás is a surprising and ground-breaking wine. This wine’s name refers to the vineyard from it comes from. Mandolás is one of the Oremus vineyards and is only planted with Furmint – the noblest variety of the region. Its essence is young, revolutionary and not frightened to explore. It is able to enrich the winemaking tradition of a region as distinguished as Tokaj.

A delicious Hungarian white made by one of Spain’s most famous wine houses, Vega Sicilia. Tempos Vega Sicilia founded Tokaj-Oremus in 1993, just three years after the fall of communism in Hungary. Here, modernisation combines with respect for the history and traditions of one of the greatest wines in the world.

    What I love about it:
    -Tastes like a SB with subdued fruit flavors, especially when compared to the bright ones from ANZ.
    -Pleasant mouthfeel despite it being desert dry.

    Other notes:
    -You can use it like a SB, Pinot G, or unoaked Char for cooking. Dryness makes it perfect to be used in cooking; added it to steamed clams and a stew.
    -Holds well against fatty food;
    -relatively neutral notes ensures the pronounced fatty flavors in the food is not outshined
    -dryness and acidity cuts through the fats
    -comparable body
    -Easy to drink but precisely because of this, watch out! One of the highest ABV whites which leaves you wondering what happened the next day. (No hangover, hallelujah for natural wines!)

    Overall a strong recommend, and a good first wine for those who would like to explore Hungarian wines.
