Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pretty light pink colour. Raspberry and biscuit first with strawberry emerging later. Crisp, good acidity, plenty of white cherry and pomegranate with mild autolytic and spice notes. Excellent value for great style and an easy-drinking nature. Perfect for salmon and tuna steaks, mustard-roasted pork loin with squash polenta, or spiced chicken thighs with fava puree and yogurt.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a party in a glass! Bubbly, pale strawberry in the glass. The palate is dry with more dried strawberry notes. Nicely balanced and will appeal to a broad spectrum. Perfect for Spring and Summer bridal showers or luncheons. Tasted May 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Pongraz is a traditional method Cap Classique rosé made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine grapes grown at high altitudes above sea level. A fresh and elegant rosé bubble with ripe red berry, toast and autolytic flavours on the palate. Great value under $20. - Community Wine Reviews
