We first tasted it in January 2021 and from that moment on we could hardly wait for it to be released. Its first vintage was 2000, and since then it has kept to its basic style, but has undergone continuous development year after year. The character of the wine is greatly defined by the plantation in the Petrács vineyard, where 50-year-old, bush-vine trained grapes of an old clone of the variety grow. It already gives 30% of this estate wine and is one of the thickest and most elegant bases of the blend. The botrytis-free base material is harvested at optimal ripeness, selected several times before being transferred to the winery, where the best quality bunches are pressed in whole clusters without breaking them. Then 50% of the wine was fermented in new Hungarian barrels and 50% in stainless steel tanks, followed by half a year of ageing, with 70% in two- and three-year-old, 228- and 350-litre Zemplén oak barrels. During the first month after fermentation, the lees were stirred slightly. The 2019 vintage of the Mandolás Furmint is fruity, freshly aromatic, yet full-bodied, mineral and has lively acidity, whereby the place of growth character can be clearly detected.
„2011 was the opportunity to make the ideal dry white wine. The grapes were so healthy that they were smiling at you. This is the 13th vintage of our dry estate wine, yet we learn something new from nature every year. The most important thing we’ve experienced in the past ten years was balance. The precise timing of the harvest, but even more giving full concentration during the time of fermentation. For me fermentation is the most important time, the most significant part of a wine’s life and one that I supervise throughout. That’s the crucial point: when the grape becomes a wine.”
