MANDOLAS 2009 definitely shows that Cabernet Franc has a mission in Villany wine region.
Concentrated, serious wine with elegant structure, but still refreshing. The complex aromas seduce the senses: the sweet spicy notes unfolds like the gripping atmosphere of a delicacy shop with coffee, chocolate truffles, roasted almonds and dried berries. Delicate experience with an everlasting finish.
Favoured with beef, roasts, the red meat of venison with e.g. forest-fruit reduction followed by a bitter chocolate dessert. Also worth trying with a cigarillo.
Average winter, followed by early blooming, varied summer. Early vintage, warm and dry autumn. The wines are intensely fruity, balanced with elegant acids and tannins.
Dry red wine
Villány | Mandolás vineyard
The terroir and the extraordinary vintage gave the opportunity in our hands, to make this vineyard selection.
To present the most beautiful values of the terroir, fermentation was followed by wild yeast and lasted 41 days. The must was concentrated and mature so the cold maceration (10 days) was followed by slow, smooth alcoholic fermentation. The malolactic fermentation and maturation took place in the barrels of 225 l, made out of Hungarian oak from Zemplen and Mecsek wood. Age: 70% new, 15% one year old, 15% two years old.
During 20 months aging we selected only the most beautiful barrels and these were bottled separate as MANDOLAS selection.
