Fragrant sandalwood and herbal medicinal notes follow through into cherry, wild strawberry, raspberry and pepper spice aromas. Gentle characters of leather and tobacco also add complexity to this intriguing Pinot. Moderate tannins with good body. The long aging in oak barrels gives this wine a velvety and round finish making it very moreish.

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. This particular wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes exclusively selected from their Noszvaj vineyard sites of Nagyfai and Nyilasmár Monopole. The wine has been aged in 70% Hungarian and 30% French oak barrels for 15 months (30% are new barrels). Production is just over 5,500 bottles.

Great match with rare, spring lamb; mushroom risotto; duck.
