Description

Situated within an array of Franschhoek wine farms at the top of the Franschhoek valley, Holden Manz wine estate is dominated by the spectacular mountains which stand guard over the scenic vineyards below. The wine farm lies between Franschhoek and the Stony Brook rivers. This 22-hectare winery benefits from wonderfully fertile, dark loam soils and state-of-the-art winemaking. The Franschhoek Valley is one of the main destinations in the world for fine wine, with farms dotted around the beautiful and quaint village of Franschhoek. There are no fewer than forty stately farms that form part of some of the top fine wines produced not only in SA, but right across the globe. Holden Manz wine farm will leave you breathless when you set your eyes on this astounding setting, with the awe-inspiring mountains overshadowing the farm in the valley below. The family estate is set on 22ha, which is perfect to nurture and grow fine vines, with the focus being on minimising the use of chemicals in order to conserve the environment.

TASTING NOTES

Bright ruby with a purple edge. A moderately intense nose filled with notes of blackberry, blueberry, pencil shavings, pipe tobacco and lesser notes of cassis. A whiff of dried pine needles and cedar complement the magnificent fruit and hints of five spices. Elegantly textured palate with a complex array of fruits. The middle palate is full and shows width with complexity and depth leading to a long, full finish. Fine tannins
combine with well-balanced acidity.
