In an intense dark red the Holden Manz Big G shimmers in the glass and scents wonderfully of ripe fruits, especially raspberries and blueberries are very present. Undertones of thyme and other herbs as well as a hint of cedar complete the bouquet. Soft and well-integrated tannins caress the palate and spoil the connoisseur in combination with rich nuances of cassis and dark fruits. The silky soft mouthfeel and the long finish linger for some time after the last sip. The full-bodied blend from Cabernet Sauvignon (72%), Cabernet Franc (22%) and Merlot (6%) has matured for 23 months in oak and is an excellent accompaniment to game or dishes with dark meat, such as beef or lamb.

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.
