2012 Villány-Siklós Villány Merlot trocken Xeyn, DHC Classicus, Südliches Transdanubien, Hungary

Clear, rather tart black berry flavour with a hint of cherries, leaves and Mediterranean herbs, paprika and tomato paste. Ripe, juicy, warm fruit with a certain acid bite and present, ripe tannins, slightly smoky and peppery nuances, Mediterranean herbs, paprika again on the palate, some tomato essence, persistent and powerful, chalky-salty in the background, peppery-ethereal spice, also has freshness despite its power, still appears young, very good, taut, juicy and somewhat Mediterranean-spicy finish.

Editor note: Translate to English Fester, geschliffener Duft nach schwarzen und roten Beeren mit floralen Nuancen, zarter Holzwürze, nussigen Anklängen und einer Spur Teer. Reife, geschliffene, ausgesprochen saftige Frucht, sehr feines, jugendliches Tannin, zarte Paprikawürze, etwas Tabak und moderates, ganz leicht rußiges Holz, nachhaltig am Gaumen, bei aller Kraft erstaunlich kühl und elegant, im Hintergrund Mineralik, viel Griff, gute Tiefe, sehr guter Abgang mit Saft und Paprika. Hat Zeit.
