Kovacs Nimrod

Kovacs Nimrod

The Winery

The essence of fine wine is rooted in the unique terroir, where the grapes are grown. Kovacs Nimrod are fortunate enough to have three of the top terroirs in the Eger wine growing region. Since Eger is a cool climate region, similar to Burgundy or cooler climates of California, varieties are planted accordingly, so they are capable of producing world class wines. They farm these grapes using sustainable practices and every year hand harvest these healthy and happy grapes which are being gently guided into fine wines. Nimrod Kovács is, first and foremost a businessman. Following a successful career in the States, Nimrod returned to Hungary to follow his dream and create his own wine domaine. Inspired by his love of jazz, the stylish labels for the Monopole range (classic and superior) bear names such as Soul, Rhapsody and Blues and come in burgundy bottles.

From the top vineyard on the Nagy-eged with Furmint grown from cuttings from Istvan Szepsy in Tokaj. Hints of buttery oak on aroma. On palate, the oak gives weight and structure, but no dominating oak flavour. Ripe, creamy fruit balanced by long, chalky acidity(2011)
