The Holden Manz Chardonnay Reserve shimmers in a lemon yellow in the connoisseur's glass that makes you want more. In the bouquet, beautiful notes of freshly baked bread and roasted almonds unfold, while citrus notes provide a fruity component. On the palate the complex and elegant white wine impresses with a creamy mouthfeel and fruity notes of melon and dried apricots. Aromas of ginger and hazelnuts, paired with a nice acidity, make the taste experience of the Holden Manz Chardonnay Reserve perfect, which will be remembered for some time with its long and soft finish. Enjoy the grandiose white wine, of which only six barrels have been produced, preferably with lobster in lemon butter sauce, oysters or fish.

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.
