The Holden Manz Chenin Blanc is the first representative of its grape variety in the estate's portfolio. The light yellow colour alone with which the white wine flows into the glass creates an appetite for more. The elegant bouquet is a fruity and floral symphony of apple blossoms and jasmine with a hint of peach. On the palate, the medium-heavy white wine impresses with a balanced acidity and fruity nuances such as quince, pears, peach and melon. Light oak notes with the aroma of fresh brioche skilfully round off the complex character of the Holden Manz Chenin Blanc, which ends with a great and lingering finish.

The Picturesque Winery Holden Manz

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.
In part it is the talented winemaker Thierry Haberer that is responsible for the first class quality of wine production but it is also the fertile, clayey soils of the region that guarantee fantastic yields. The wines from the Holden Manz estate are, despite the short existence, appreciated internationally and have been awarded at numerous competitions. The Holden Manz Big G from the Avant Garde Range has, amongst others, won Gold at the 2011 ‘Decanter World Wine Awards’ in London.
