Tasting notes

The MCC Brut from Pongrácz Winery is made from the two Champagne grape varieties, Pinot Noir (60%) and Chardonnay (40%). On the nose, it presents notes of green apple and citrus. The Pongrácz MCC Brut charms the palate with delicate yeasty notes intermingling with freshly baked bread and ripe fruits.

It offers a delightful creamy mouthful of blackberry fruit flavors with a lingering finish. The 4 Platter Stars award does justice to its exceptional quality. The MCC Brut from Pongrácz stands as a flagship among Cap Classiques.

Composition of this cuvée:

60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay


Cuvée Wein

Cuvées are among some of the most expensive wines in the world. Bordeaux wines from France and premium wines from the Rioja region in Spain are also considered Cuvées. Additionally, the best Champagnes in the world are often Cuvée Champagnes, consisting of the grape varieties Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier.

In South Africa, excellent Cuvées are also produced, largely due to the historical connection to the French wine world.

But what exactly is a Cuvée?

In essence, Cuvée means the blending of wine from different grape varieties in one fermentation vessel. The blending of grapes from different vineyards also results in a wine being referred to as a Cuvée. There are generally two different times when different vineyards and grape varieties can be blended.

Some winemakers mix the grapes already during pressing. This results in the blended grapes fermenting together in the fermentation vessel. However, the more common practice is post-fermentation blending. Here, already fermented wines are blended together to mature together during aging.

Shortly after Hungary's surrender, he was captured by the advancing Russians. When the war was finally over, Desiderius Pongrácz was released back to Hungary. During the Hungarian uprising, he decided to flee and set his sights on Africa after getting a job as a farm manager in Namibia through his European aristocratic connections. In 1958 he moved to the Stellenbosch wine region, where he worked as Farmmanager worked. During his over 20 years in winemaking in the Cape, Pongrácz's intellect and vision contributed significantly to the success of the South African wine industry.
He had a major influence on the introduction and propagation of premium grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. He understood the importance of these grape varieties for the future of the South African wine industry like no other.

Switzerland - Shipping to the German border area

A cheaper and not much more complex alternative is to have the wine delivered to the German border area and do the customs clearance yourself. You will then receive the German VAT back, have an allowance of 5 liters per person and pay 2 CHF duty for each additional liter.
We also deliver free of charge within Germany for orders over €120. Furthermore, you don't have to coordinate with the courier and make sure someone is there once the delivery arrives.

If you don't have the opportunity to have the goods delivered to friends in the border area, then we can have the wine delivered to a UPS access point near the border near your home. You don't need to register, there are no additional costs and you just have to pick up your wines there within a certain time frame.

There are also various providers of parcel shops from which you can have your parcel picked up for a small fee, e.g. SWISS-PAKET - with branches in Waldshut-Tiengen, Laufenburg, Weil am Rhein, Jestetten & Rheinfelden or EURORETOUR - with branches in Waldshut- Tiengen, Laufenburg, Weil am Rhein & Konstanz.

Upon request, we will send an export receipt, which you can have stamped at customs and sent back to us. We will then refund you the German VAT minus a processing fee of €12.00.

Please note the opening hours of the customs offices! The customs offices usually close on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and are closed on Sunday! For more information about opening times and customs clearance see https://www.ezv.admin.ch.
To declare customs, you just drive to the right at the border. You can also easily skip the customs queue and pay with an EC card.
The officials are friendly and you can also get competent information over the phone.

Please note that this form of reimbursement involves costs and effort. Therefore, we generally deduct €12.00 from the VAT amount to be reimbursed for this expense.

Taxes, duties and levies in the EU

All taxes, customs duties and duties for Germany, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Croatia, Luxembourg, Malta, Austria, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Cyprus (Greek part only) are included in our prices .

The following countries levy an excise tax on wine (as of May 2021): Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Poland. Due to their transport within the EU internal market, postal items from European Union countries are regularly not processed by the customs administration. These shipments are therefore generally delivered directly to you without any import taxes being charged. However, this does not mean that the goods are generally duty-free. Under certain conditions, postal items transported within the EU may also be checked. To this end, the customs authorities are allowed to have postal items opened and check whether they contain goods that are subject to excise duty or whose import, transit or export violate legal prohibitions and restrictions. The secrecy of letters and mail is restricted in this respect. If you receive goods subject to excise duty, you are generally obliged to report this to the responsible customs office and pay duties if necessary.

Due to legal regulations, we only deliver to people over 18 years of age. This can be checked by our shipping agent. Therefore, please make sure that an adult can accept the delivery.

Strohgelb und wenig Perlage im Glas. In der Nase leicht schwefelig. Am Gaumen spritzig, viel Säure, ordentlich Gerbstoffe und Grapefruit.

Angenehmer Zitrus in der Nase, unterstützt die Säure. Leckerer Hefegeschmack mit langem Abgang.
