Holden Manz Cabernet Franc Reserve 2016



Bright ruby red.



A subtly fragrant aromatic wine with tobacco leaf, spice and pepper notes.

Enchanting black fruit nose.



Rich and elegant soft textured wine with predominant cassis and dark berries. Well

balanced savoury flavours with good volume. Wood is well integrated, pleasantly

subtle tannins. Balanced with a long finish with plenty of spice and mocha.



100% barrel fermented using wild yeast before 27 months of maturation in a selection

of French oak barrels.

Selected bunches from our cabernet franc were berry sorted before a 10 day cold

soak. Berries were transferred to 100% new French oak barrels and allowed to

ferment slowly at low temperatures. This wine consists of mainly free run juice with

some press. Wine will continue to develop in bottle over the next 7 years. Limited

production of 120 x 1.5l magnums and 2635 x 750ml bottles.
