OUR PRODUCTS

Holden Manz Chenin Blanc 2018

The Chenin Blanc that finally splits the difference between the the crunchy acidity of the best of the Loire Valley and the generosity of fruit that fans of South Africa’s most popular white grape variety crave. The grapes were hand harvested from three special vineyards, all of them planted with 40-plus-year-old bush vines. 20% of this was vinified and aged in new and used French oak, which lend it richness while allowing its inherent energy to shine through.

Holden Manz Barrel-Fermented Chardonnay 2018

Fans of white Burgundy who don’t want to spend fortune: Rejoice! This beautiful, generous Chardonnay has all the richness of the best of Burgundy or Napa without the weight, and the ringing minerality that ties it so closely to the land in which it grew. Fermented with native yeast and allowed to rest on its lees, this was aged in 40% new French oak barrels.

Holden Manz Rosé 2018

This is a charming, energetic rosé made in the Provence style: Neither too rich nor too light, but just right for sipping on its own or pairing with everything from light seafood dishes to take-out Chinese food. It’s a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc.
