Discover More About Our Products

Pongrácz is one of South Africa's finest Méthode Cap Classiques (MCCs) and is made in the traditional French method of allowing secondary fermentation to take place in the bottle.

The range is inspired by Desiderius Pongrácz, a nobleman and refugee from the Hungarian uprising who revolutionised viticulture in the Cape. He was, amongst others, instrumental in introducing the classic Champagne varietals Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to the Cape Winelands and today the range pays tribute to his bold tenacity, innovation and unwavering spirit.

Pongrácz Brut is a timeless Cap Classique with great elegance and complexity.

Description of Pongracz Brut Sparkling Wine Mcc

Pongracz Brut Sparkling Wine Mcc

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Golden yellow.
  • Nose: Crisp green apple notes and nuttiness of freshly baked bread are prevalent on the nose.
  • Mouth: On the palate, delicate 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 blackberry fruit flavours with a long lingering aftertaste.

APPELLATION: Stellenbosch

VINEYARD: Pongrácz

GRAPES: Pongrácz is made of 60% Pinot noir that imparts a clean flintiness, and 40% Chardonnay for its distinctive body and taste.

AGEING: The wine is left on the lees for two years 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.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are harvested by hand at 18-20°. 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.

PAIRING: It is perfect for any occasion and is a superb partner to sashimi, oysters in a red onion vinaigrette or fresh mint and pea soup.

ABV: 12.5%

Het werd door mijn vrienden voor mij uit Pongrácz meegebracht.
Een mousserende voor elke gelegenheid. Een Stellenbosch met aroma's van gist. Zeer vette om een mousserende te zijn.

Colore bello e brillante. Mi è piaciuto l'odore di forno.Al palato termina con una punta amarognola.
Non andava bene con la cena.
L'ho regalato ai miei genitori e l'abbiamo provato insieme.
