A Christmas menu with Kovács Nimród Winery
Caviar & Bull is a relatively new restaurant in Budapest in the building of the glamorous 5 star Corinthia Hotel Budapest. The restaurant has a great wine list with a good selection of Hungarian wines. Kovács Nimród Wines from the high altitude Nagy Eged mountain vineyards are also available. Victoria Evans executive sommelier and Sergi Huerga Marin executive chef created a Christmas menu – if you want to make it at home, you can do it, KNW wines are available in many countries of the world. Check out here if there is a supplier near you.

Grand Bleu is a magnificent Kékfrankos from Nagy Eged mountain, a majestic, elegant wine worthy of Christmas. The sirloin was served with aubergine, tomato concasse, paprika sand, black garlic and blackberry gel. The acidity of the wine balances the fat of the meet perfectly, while the fruity notes are reflected in the blackberry gel (on the left of the above photo)
NJK, a blend of Syrah and Kékfrankos is the flagship wine of the winery, an iconic complex, full bodied treasure. The velvety texture pairs well with the smothness of the meet. The deer chuck was served with blackcurrant sauce flavoured with juniper, endives and dark trumpet mushrooms. The spicy sauce intensifies the spicy character of Syrah, while the mushroom rhymes pleasantly with the earthy tones of the wine (in the middle of the above photo).
