Production

The Kovács Nimród vineyards are farmed organically and primarily planted with a mix of native varietals and classic French vines. The three vineyards include: Nagy Eged (10 hectares – Grand Cru), Nyilasmár (8 hectares – Grand Cru) and Nagfai (12 hectares – Premier Cru). This wine is made from grapes exclusively selected from the Nagyfai and Nyilasmár Monopole terroirs. The wine undergoes a wild yeast fermentation before being aged in 30% new Hungarian oak barrrels and 70% second fill French barrels for 22 months.

Tasting notes

This Kékfrankos shows a deep ruby colour that turns violet at the edges and leads with flavours of red fruit, cherry, and red currant, violet and a subtle nuttiness. These complex flavours are combined with the salts and silky tannins of the terroir.

Food match

Pairs well with cheese, pork, lamb, and sauces made of forest fruits.
