Pongrácz Blanc de Blancs NV

South Africa’s Pongrácz, owned by Distell, has expanded its range of Méthode Cap Classique sparkling wines within the travel retail market, offering its 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs exclusively worldwide within this sector.

Described as an homage to classic French tradition, Pongrácz Blanc de Blancs is made of Chardonnay grapes handpicked from two select vineyards cooled by maritime breezes in the Robertson and Elgin regions of South Africa.
“Typically the Champagne of choice among wine connoisseurs, Blanc de Blancs is crafted in the classic French tradition and boasts an attractive depth of brioche, having been aged on its lees for a minimum of 36 months,” said winemaker Elunda Basson.

The Pongrácz label is inspired by the Hungarian refugee Desiderius Pongrácz, who spent nearly a decade toiling in the labour camps of Siberia as a prisoner of war, having served in the Hungarian cavalry. He later settled in Stellenbosch and was appointed chief viticultural adviser at the Distillers Corporation in 1973, helping to shape South Africa’s wine industry.
