We’ve always been huge fans of Holden Manz Big G and have stocked it for a number of years. Holden Manz Big G demonstrates an explosion of berry fruits and soft ripe tannins creating a wonderfully balanced blend. Cabernet Franc, with its rich intensity of black fruit flavour and acid, combined with the balanced tannins and depth of fruit in the Cabernet Sauvignon results in a deeply complex and unique wine. The finish is superb, and this vintage of Holden Manz Big G really shows what these grapes can achieve in South Africa.
Ripe dark fruit, graphite, cassis, a subtle herbaceousness, nuances of blueberry and thyme backed with hints of cedar wood and pencil shavings. Soft, voluptuous integrated tannins with a rich creamy cassis freshness. Silky smooth mid palate with a finish which is full of dark fruit and long lingering flavours. Great tension too!
