You will earn 12 Points for buying this product


An elegant and distinctive Méthode Cap Classique (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay), Pongrácz is inspired by a nobleman and refugee from the Hungarian uprising, Desiderius Pongrácz, whose sheer genius and vision revitalised viticulture in the Cape. Composed in the classic French tradition of two noble varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this magnificent Cap Classique evokes an air of style and sophistication, a tribute to the genius to whom we owe its name.

Deli cate yeasty tones, layered with toast and ripe fruit are enlivened by a firm mousse and persistent bead that make it particularly attractive. It imparts a wonderful foamy mouthful of black fruit flavours with a long lingering aftertaste.

The elegant new 375ml Pongrácz is made of 60% Pinot Noir for its distinctive body and taste and 40% Chardonnay that imparts a clean flintiness. The grapes are harvested by hand at 18° - 20° Balling from January until mid-February. After whole bunch pressing with minimal skin contact, the clear grape juice is left to settle before it is pumped into steel tanks for cold fermentation. After the first fermentation and malolactic fermentation the wine is prepared for secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine is left on the lees for a minimum of 12 months before the sediment is removed in the traditional process of "remuage" and "dégorgement". The bottles are then corked and laid down in a cool cellar for a further 2 - 4 months.

It is perfect for any occasion and is superb with chicken, seafood and oysters.
