OREMUS “Mandolás” Furmint 2017

(Tokaj-Hegyalja, Hungary) $24

Furmint (Hungary’s famous grape) makes the best dry white wine you may not have had enough of (or even tried) yet. It’s got weight without heaviness, and crispness without tartness. Plus, it bursts with vibrant notes of pepperiness and salty minerals. If you’re a good cook, this should be your house wine because it goes with scores of foods—everything from Italian to Asian dishes. This is Oremus’ bone-dry furmint from a vineyard called Mandolá’s, and it was one of the first dry furmints in Hungary. The winery is owned by the same family who owns Spain’s most famous wine—Vega Sicilia. (13% abv)
