Pongracz Desiderius 2008
Pongrácz Desiderius 2008
Stellenbosch, South Africa
A blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. Handcrafted in a uniquely styled fluted bottle that epitomises elegant, quality and nobility, this magnificent Cap Classique encapsulates grace and exceptional character. It is alluring with a rich complexity and a slight green tint that teems with light, lively bubbles and raciness on the palate. Nuances of fresh fruit, almonds and freshly baked bread delight the senses. This prestige cuvée is the ultimate pairing with fresh oysters, smoked salmon and steamed mussels. It also partners sublimely with mushroom and spinach risotto.
