The Holden Manz Big G flows into the glass with an intense ruby red colour and develops its complex character already in the bouquet. Aromas of dark, ripe fruit such as blueberries or blackcurrants are underpinned by a hint of thyme and a light cedar note. On the palate, the full-bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Cabernet Franc (19%) and Merlot (11%) impresses with beautiful fruity notes, its silky mouthfeel and soft, well-integrated tannins, which culminate in a long-lasting finish. The red wine has matured for 20 months in barriques and is an excellent accompaniment to hearty dishes with dark meat or game.

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.
