ÖRDÖG is the blend of local varieties in the classicus product range, named after the Devil in love in the traditional Villány legend. It is not the finesse, but the liveliness that makes it popular. The most valuable characteristics of this blend of local varieties are its powerful, dynamic structure, lively and refreshing acidity. On the palate it features the fruity notes of dried sour cherry and ripe cherry with hints of cinnamon spiciness. In the aftertaste the taste and texture reminiscent of cocoa powder also appear. The idea of the legend’s devil about marriage lives on in this diabolical blend.
