Vylyan Ördög 2008

Vylyan is definitely one of the major prestige wineries of Villány, this is one of their basic standard red blends. A standard best buy for years, this blend is made from zweigelt, kadarka, kékfrankos and merlot.

Mid rubin hue, a spicy-fruity nose with cedar, cherry, red currant, a bit of spice. A light-to-medium body, medium alcohol, but acidity drives the wine. Sour cherry, and red currant dominate the flavour profile, a relatively light, enjoyable wine. Recommended for everyday chitchat, spicy food, light meats. Whatever.

At 83 points and a price of ca. 1800 HUF (6 EUR) another standard best buy on the Hungarian market. Probably also a typical face of Villány we may hopefully look forward to more often in the future.

    To be perfectly honest, I was dissatisfied with the Vylyan Villányi Vörös 2006 (a blend based on Merlot; I tasted it 1.5 years ago). It was not an awful wine but I would definitely not call it a ‘best buy’. I bought it for about the same price.

    Hello Attila,

    What do you mean by that?

    And another question. Have you tasted this Australian wine: 2008 Teusner Righteous FG Shiraz? This wine costs USD 130 and was given 80 points by Gary Vaynerchuk. What’s your opinion on that?
