Holden Manz Vernissage 2014
Holden Manz wine estate is located above the Franschhoek valley overlooked by magnificent mountains which stand guard over the beautiful valley below. Situated between the Franschhoek & Stony Brook rivers, this 22 hectare wine estate, with its fertile and dark loam soils produces superb wines in a state-of-the-art cellar.
A beautiful collaboration of the typical characteristics of the three cultivars, the nose is showing lots of red berry flavors and black fruit originating from the Cabernet Sauvignon as well as upfront spice and dark cherries from the Shiraz and plum from the Merlot.
This wine has beautiful ripe, soft and allowing tannins with good balance and a soft and lingering finish. Spice, tobacco cassis flavours are prominent.
