Kovacs Nimrod Dixie Chardonnay Pinot Gris 2019

A zippy characterful blend from Kovács Nimród's Grand Cru vineyards. Part of Nimrod's all that jazz series, Dixie mirrors the fun upbeat style of Dixieland New Orleans jazz.

Production

The Kovács Nimród vineyards are farmed with minimal intervention and primarily planted with Burgundian and Northern Rhone varieties. These vines feel very much at home in the Eger as it is located on a similar latitude to that of Burgundy, and thanks to 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 barrels for 6 months and the Pinot Gris is aged and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Note

Clear and bright pale yellow in colour, the nose is pronounced stone fruit and lemon sherbet 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.
