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.

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.

Aged in Hungarian and French oak barrels for 6 months. Pinot Gris: aged and fermented in steel tank.

Kovács Nimród Winery – a fantastical sounding name which is making a name for itself in Hungary... If you Google 'Nimród', you're presented with a mixed bag of definitions including a skilful hunter, the great-grandson of Noah, and a skyplane but you can now add to this a world-class winery located in Eger, one of Hungary’s most premium wine regions.

Here, wines are expertly crafted from grapes hand harvested in the top three terroirs. These Grand Cru and Premier Cru classified vineyards enjoy a cool climate similar to Burgundy, which is why (along with producing premium wines) Eger is referred to as ‘the Hungarian Burgundy’. The sites are planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc but also feature traditional Hungarian varietals including Furnint and Kékfrankos. The winery is situated in seven continuous cellars on the historic Verőszala Street in Eger, which in the 18th Century was lined with wine press houses erected above each cellar to handle onsite grape processing. After the grape juice was fermented, the wines were stored in barrel in the cool cellars below.

Today, owner Nimród Kovács, a retired international businessman and philanthropist, has resurrected this wine house and guided by this tradition, continues to make wine in a similar way, albeit aided by 21st century technology.

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