Tasting notesMeal suggestionVintageBasic analysis

Our lovable merlot captivates with its lively and concentrated character.

Nice sip with elegant and round structure and soft tannins.

Exuberantly fruity  wine packed with red berries and followed by barrel spices (cocoa, mint and cedar).

Every drop is round and soul warming.

From the outset we believe wine and art belong together. We asked seven contemporary Hungarian writers and poets to draw inspiration from the premium wines of Vylyan Winery. From the essence of poems and short stories the creating hand conjured up artistic drawings, and we now present the result to the world on the Vylyan bottles. The drawings reflect the soul of the wines on paper, as the artists see them.

You can read here the story of Merlot.

We recommend it with grilled meats, roasts and most meals with a fruit side dish.

2017

The coldest winter and the earliest vintage ever! We had a real, cold, long-lasting winter with minus degrees. Flowering in late May, good warm summer, with enough wet. The early harvest started on the 17th of August with pinot noir rosé harvest. We harvested mature, healthy and rich grapes, with beautiful colour.
