The Holden Manz Reserve Syrah sparkles in a dark violet in the glass. The bouquet of this expressive red wine is just as intense as the colour, combining spicy and floral notes. The aromatic play of violets, cinnamon, nutmeg and liquorice makes the first sip a delight, and the Holden Manz Reserve Syrah is also extremely complex on the palate. Rich nuances of dark fruits paired with spicy black pepper and smoky tones ensure a long-lasting taste experience that is perfectly rounded off by well-integrated tannins. Only 2312 bottles of the Holden Manz Reserve Syrah, which has matured for 24 months in French oak, were produced. A red wine with a strong character such as the Holden Manz Reserve Syrah is best served with dishes with dark meat, but also with roasted duck in plum sauce the red wine is a delight.

The wonderful five star winery Holden Manz is located between Franschhoek and the Stony Brook River. 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.
