Big brand Villányi – Teleki Merlot 2017

The most well known Villányi brand. Big volume, cheap, widely available in Hungary.

Better on the nose. A good display of the variety and region, ripe, savoury. Ripe plums and some pirazine. A tad simple and the finish is somewhat bitter. It’s OK to drink with food, but don’t expect too much.
