Oremus 1999 "Mandolás" Tokaji Furmint Dry ($8.99)
This clear, brass-color wine presents rich and complex aromas of white fruit and butter, with almonds and hazelnuts as subtle background notes. Medium-bodied, fresh and tart, it's more youthful on the palate than the nose: juicy tropical fruit balanced by mouth-watering acidity, with snappy lemons in a very long finish. US Importer: Europvin USA, Oakland, Calif. (Jun 9, 2004)

FOOD MATCH: The wine's acidity and richness would make it a great match with pan-seared scallops, good with a broad range of seafood and fish; it worked nicely, too, with a vegetarian pasta dish, broccoli tossed over rigatoni with a Mornay-style sauce made with Swiss Gruyere Reserve.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
