Holden Manz Big G 2017 is made from a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot. Individual varietals were handpicked and sorted allowing only the best berries to be used for this wine. Selected blocks in the vineyard are allocated to be used in making the Big G. All grapes were fermented wild; 10% barrel fermented in new wood. Merlot grapes were harvested on 1 March 2017 and cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grapes were harvested on 28 March 2017. Matured for 20 months in 30% new 225-litre French oak barrels. Bottled 4 December 2019 at 15%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Ripe dark fruit, graphite, cassis, a subtle herbaceousness, nuances of blueberry and thyme backed with hints of cedar wood and pencil shavings.

Palate: Soft, voluptuous integrated tannins with a rich creamy cassis freshness. Fruit forward entry with lots of bramble fruit characters and a silky smooth mid-palate.

Finish: The finish is full with dark fruits and sweet wood spice lingering on the palate.
