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 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.


Intense bright ruby red. Plum and red cherry dominate with subtle cedar, cinnamon, fynbos and wild fig. Smooth, elegant and sexy – think a beautiful lady in a flowing red dress on the catwalk! Red cherries on entry with a luscious complex mid-palate and a gentle blueberry finish –very moreish! Soft round tannins with some tension on the finish.


Best end rack of new season lamb, baby new potatoes, fresh garden peas and a touch of mint.
