New petite Pongrácz

Downsizing pack sizes is a marked food-bev industry trend in these recessionary times, and now Distell is doing with one of SA’s best-known Méthode Cap Classique wines, Pongrácz, that’s been launched in a petite 375ml bottle.

Ideal as a pre-dinner bubbly or a relaxing after work indulgence when a glass or two is all that’s wanted, the elegant new 375ml bottles of Pongrácz and Pongrácz Rosé, South Africa’s top Non-vintage and Rosé in the highly contested 2010 Wine Amorim Cap Classique Challenge, are a smaller version of the distinctive original Pongrácz.

Says the press release from Distell: “An exceptional blend of the classic Champagne varietals, Pinot noir and Chardonnay, Pongrácz is set apart by its crisp green apple tones and the nuttiness of freshly baked bread. The Rosé with its salmon hue is enchantingly dry with a wonderful foamy mouthful of black berry fruit and delicate yeasty notes that balances superbly with a dry palate.”

The Pongrácz 375ml is available at approximately R48 and the Rosé at around R58 per bottle at selected wine shops, trendy bars and restaurants.
