Past winner of the International Wine Challenge Sparkling Wine of the Year. Veritas Gold Award 2005. Pongracz is made strictly according to the dictates of the M�thode Cap Classique, and is composed entirely of two noble grape varieties, Pinot Noir (60%) and Chardonnay (40%). Chardonnay imparts a clean flintiness while Pinot Noir gives body and taste. All the best sparkling wines in the world including the most famous French Champagnes are made according to this method: M�thode Champagnoise. Pongracz is named in honour of the Hungarian Desiderius Pongracz, a prisoner of the Red Army. He escaped to Austria in 1956 and subsequently immigrated to South Africa. He was the gift of the "third" eye - a genius for seeing the new in the familiar, finding the unexpected in the traditional. His wisdom on wine and cultivars revitalised viticulture at the Cape.
