It is made from high yielding, well ripened grapes and will never be as robust and boisterous as cabernet sauvignon can sometimes be. It is an elegant, flattering variety that needs a lot of time to mature. However, there are big differences between the various wine producers in terms of average yields, vineyard load and site. The Günzer Family Estate strives to produce a Villányi Franc that retains its fruitiness, without over-fermentation, while retaining its "good drinkability" by using both tank and French barrel for ageing.

The red wines of Villány were popularised by the softness of Portugieser, which produces pleasantly fruity, approachable, easy-drinking wines, that are generally drunk in the year following the harvest.Wines from varieties that are generally harvested with much higher acidity and tannins, often from low-yielding vines, thus with greater concentration, need long ageing in oak. They often only start to show their true potential after two or three years.The wine district’s flagship variety is Cabernet Franc. Besides Villány, monovarietal wines from the variety are generally only produced in its region of origin, the Loire Valley. It may only bear the trademark of Villányi Franc, the wine district’s flagship wine, after sensory evaluation by a panel of producers. White wines from Siklós are relatively low in acidity, but rich in alcohol and dry extract. They are not renowned for their freshness, rather than for their full-body and depth of flavour.
