Oremus Furmint Tokaji Dry Mandolás 2007
This wine is perhaps at the end of its tether in terms of lifespan - although still quite enjoyable and drinkable in its fiery, hot kind of way. A number of barnyard-like scents greet the nose(wet straw comes to mind) along with some brandied fruit like figs, dates and raisins. This wine meets the tongue with a rather sharp drying effect (yet fat viscosity) that might pair well with greasy fare or perhaps Greek food. Not a bad (food) wine at all, but drink up...Add winemaker's notes

External Reviews for Oremus Furmint Tokaji Dry Mandolás
A crisp, dry Furmint. Floral aromas, green apple, spice and a hint of smoke. Great structure will allow this wine to transform into something great with sufficient age but drink it today when you’re looking for an aromatic, refreshing white wine.
Intensives Orange-Gelb. Komplexes Fruchtbouquet, rosinierte Trauben, Marillen und Honig in allen Facetten sowie Marzipan und reife Quitten dahinter. Eleganter Auftakt mit nobler Süsse und herrlich stützender Säure, auch in der Mitte perfekte Balance und einzigartig Frische, verschwenderische Fruchtaromatik mit viel gelber, reifer Frucht, nun auch zarte Ananasnoten und zunehmende Mineralik, unendliche Länge mit fast endlos nachklingenden Honignoten.

Bright golden-orange. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Peach, honey. Faintly spicy, honeyed aromas. Not much maturity or developed yet in the aromas. Plenty of sweet, nectarous flavors on the glycerous palate, with a syrupy, lingering finish.
Bodegas Oremus, owned by the famed Spanish winery, Vega Sicilia, is one of a handful of properties in Hungary that are rejuvenating the tradition of quality dessert wines lost after years of neglect There remarkable dessert wines, previously known more by legend than by taste, rival the best that France and Germany have to offer. In fact, it was reputedly at Oremus, in the year 1650, that the first Aszú wine was made from grapes affected by Botrytis Cinerea or "Noble Rot." This was a full 100 years before similar wines were produced along the Rhine or in Sauternes. Today, Tokaji is experiencing a renaissance, and Oremus is at the forefront.
Focused, displaying tropical fruit flavors including coconut, passion fruit and orange set against a vivid backdrop. Very high-strung and intense, with a lingering aftertaste of green tea and apricot. Drink now through 2008.
Fruity aromas of pineapple and apricot join notes of vanilla and dried spice, while in the mouth this wine is plump and round. Flavors of pineapple, citrus and apricot coat the palate, then leave slowly, finishing with honey.
