The Holden Manz Merlot Reserve sparkles in an intense ruby red in the glass of the connoisseur and exudes the wonderful scent of plums and red cherries, accompanied by wild figs, fynbos and cinnamon. A light cedar note completes the bouquet. On the palate the elegant and soft red wine is also fruity and complex with soft tannins. The red wine is only available in a limited quantity of 2761 bottles and has matured for 22 months in French oak. It therefore has great potential to develop, but even today the Holden Manz Merlot Reserve is a real taste experience. Serve the red wine with lamb with fresh herbs, for example, but also enjoy it pure.

From there, you can overlook the idyllic valley and the beautiful mountain range, and only 60 kilometers away from Cape Town. The name of the estate is a combination of the last names of the owners; the Brit Gerard Holden and the German Migo Manz. Both purchased the estate in August 2010 with the former name ‘Klein Genoot’ and subsequently renamed it. From then on with the primary target to produce unique wine creations, paired with luxurious exclusivity. The Holden Manz Wine Estate is nowadays without a doubt one of the most attractive and best wineries in South Africa.
