Holden Manz – the Emerging Gem of Franschhoek
Friday 29th January 2021 (7pm to 8.45pm)
We are joined by Gerard Holden himself, live from South Africa, as we taste the full range of wines from this incredible estate built around some of the oldest and best situated vineyards in Franschhoek. As well as the Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Visionaire and Big G (Bordeaux blend) we shall taste all three of the award winning Reserve Wines (Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah). The Reserve Cabernet Franc won the top award for this grape in South Africa in 2019 while the Reserve Syrah has just been awarded Top 10 and Gold Medal in the 2020 Syrah du Monde. And the Good Sport Fortified Vintage Shiraz gives the best Vintage Port a real run for its money. Gerard is a passionate communicator and this evening will have some great and compelling wines.
