Kovács Nimród Dixie Chardonnay Pinot Gris 2019


Kovács Nimród Winery

Meet the producer

Kovács Nimród Winery – a fantastical sounding name which is making a name for itself in Hungary... If you Google 'Nimród',...



The Kovács Nimród vineyards are farmed with minimal intervention and primarily planted with Burgundian Northern Rhone varieties. These vines feel very much at home in the Egar as it is located on a similar latitude to that of Burgundy, and thanks monks from Burgundy planting vines in this area centuries ago, the area has grown into a world class wine producing region. KNW have three vineyards including Nagy Eged (Eger) and Nyilasmár (Noszvaj) - both classified as ‘Grand Cru’ and incorporating around 10 and 8 hectares respectively, and Nagfai - 12 hectares of ‘Premier Cru’ vines also located in Noszvaj, one of the major wine growing districts of the Eger region situated just 8km outside the main town. The Chardonnay portion of this wine is aged in Hungarian and French oak barrrels for 6 months and the Pinot Gris is aged and fermented in steel tank.

Tasting notes

Clear and bright pale yellow in colour, the nose is pronounced stone fruit and lemon sherbert characters. The palate is zesty with delicious fleshy nectarine fruit underpinned with good acidity and minerality.

Food match

Light chicken and fish dishes or try with a fruit salad for dessert.
