Pongracz – Rosé – Silver Fruity & Floral
4th January 2018
Congratulations to Pongracz with their Rosé which received a silver medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.
A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Fruity & Floral: “A wine that is likely to show fruity flavours such as apples to red berry fruits and mixed with aromas of varied common flower petals such as rose and acacia.”
A blend of hand-picked Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Noir made by the Traditional Method known as Cap Classique in South Africa. A delicate salmon-pink rosé that shows delicate yeasty tones, layered with toast and ripe fruit, including blackberry. This wine delights the palate as much as the eye, evoking an air of romance with a delicate salmon pink hue. Light strawberry tones are layered with scents of baked bread. The palate is perfectly balanced with red berry and juicy blackberry notes, finishing with clean acidity. The wine enjoys two years on the lees and is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
