With the Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v, gourmets have pure romance and South African joie de vivre in their glass. The light pink colour literally radiates in the glass; immediately, aromas of berries and freshly baked bread become apparent. On the palate, the sparkling wine reveals a rich flavour; notes of currants are especially dominant. The Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v matured in the bottle which gave it a long finish.
It is recommended to serve the Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v as an aperitif or during a romantic dinner for two. This sparkling wine is also perfect at a fun evening with good friends.
In the Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v, the winemakers have used the grapes Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The longer skin contact of the Pinot Noir grapes created a darker colour when compared with other MCCs, and the grape variety also contributes its typical aromas of dark fruits and berries to the Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v. 40 % Chardonnay give the sparkling wine its full body and the creamy flavour.
Pongracz set itself to produce elegant and distinctive sparkling wines from the Cape. With the Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v, the winemakers honour the Hungarian gentleman Desiderius Pongracz whose noble character and sense of style are mirrored in the aromas of this rosé.
As is right and proper for a true sparkling wine produced according to MCC, the Pongracz Méthode Cap Classique Brut Rosé n/v matured in the bottle for several years. This gave it a great storability yet you can also enjoy it right away.
