Event Details

South African wines sure seem to be the pick of the bunch here at The Flying Winemaker for 2017 and we are excited to introduce Holden Manz from Franschhoek to Hong Kong.

About Holden Manz

Holden Manz is located in the top, southern-most corner of the Franschhoek Valley, in the embrace of its spectacular mountains (as seen in the image). The 22 hectare Holden Manz Wine Estate is situated between the Franschhoek River and Stony Brook at 300 meters above sea level. An exclusive grower of red grapes, the Estate only cultivates its top 16 hectares under vineyards, notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot.

Philosophy

A passionate and out-of-the-box approach combined with a deep respect for preserving the quality of the fruit shows in every bottle they produce, and there is no doubt that the quality-driven approach and thirst for innovation will set new standards in the Holden Manz range – something to look forward to as Holden Manz continues to delve into the potential bursting from their terroir and grapes alike.

The Wines:

1.) Holden Manz Chenin Blanc 2017

2.) Holden Manz Chardonnay 2016

3.) Holden Manz Rosé 2017

4.) Holden Manz Vernissage 2014

5.) Holden Manz Visionaire 2013

6.) Holden Manz Shiraz 2012

7.) Holden Manz “Big G” 2013

Final thoughts from Winemaker, Thierry Haberer on South Africa.

“You encounter different terroir and climates within short distances and I enjoy being able to work with most of the varietals and having the ability to achieve excellent results. I see South Africa as somewhere I can contribute my winemaking experiences and fulfil my personal and professional goals going forward.”
