Grapes for the Holden Manz Chardonnay Reserve 2019 were specially sourced and hand selected by the Cellar Master from a ridge overlooking the ocean in Somerset West and a high-altitude slope on the side of the Simonsberg Mountain. Following harvesting on 28th February 2019 the berries were cooled to 5ºC prior to a whole bunch press using the “Champagne” press cycle. After clarifying over-night, pressed juice was transferred to 225-litre French oak barrels (90% new barrels, 10% 2nd-fill) for fermentation. The chardonnay was 100% barrel fermented, using natural yeast with extended lees contact and daily batonnage. 100% of this wine underwent malolactic fermentation. A total of 1,352 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Vanilla, lemon zest, pistachios, lime blossom.

Palate: Extended lees contact adds a creaminess and complexity, presenting an appealing length of palate. Full mouth feel, crisp clean acidity highlighting ripe grapefruit and limes.

Finish: Elegant flavours of Cape gooseberry, white peach and elderflower interwoven with complex acidity provide a long, smooth finish.
