Holden Manz Proprietors Blend White
Winemaker Thierry Haberer has been making wines around the world for over a decade. He has spent time working in Bordeaux and Napa Valley in the USA before settling at the Holden Manz Wine Estate in Franschhoek Valley, one of South Africa’s premiere winemaking regions. The estate boasts 22 hectares of exclusively red grape varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
The grapes for this white blend (40% Viognier, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Chenin Blanc) were hand selected from a variety of locations in Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Wellington and Paarl. They combine magnificently to produce a beautifully rounded, full bodied and well balanced wine. A bright, flinty nose with lime, green apples, tangerine and honeysuckle. The wine has had 12 month’s lees contact, adding creaminess and complexity. Absolutely sublime.
We love this wine with seared tuna steaks, tempura prawns with sweet chilli dipping sauce and mushroom wellington.
