Pongrácz Rosé is made of 60% Pinot Noir that imparts a clean flintiness, and 40% Chardonnay for its distinctive body and taste. 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 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. It contains more Pinot Noir than the original Pongrácz blend as a result of the red wine dosage which is added after “dégorgement” to give this Cap Classique its Rosé blush.

Tasting Notes:

Delicate strawberry tones are layered with whiffs of baked bread. On the palate it is perfectly balanced with clean acidity and juicy blackberry fruit.
