Grapes for the Holden Manz Chenin Blanc 2020 were hand-selected from three vineyards in the Stellenbosch/Paarl border area and from Perdeberg. 100% from bush vines over 40 years old. Harvested during the period 4 to 20 February 2020. Berries were cooled to 5°C prior to a Champagne crush cycle. Clarified juice was transferred by gravity to barrels and tanks for fermentation. Wild yeast fermentation with 20% vinified and matured for 6 months in a mix of new and second-fill French oak barrels. All the wine was stirred continually on the fine lees. Bottled November 2020. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: An elegant, perfumed example of Chenin Blanc with symphonic notes of white peaches, orange zest, jasmine, citrus, freshly cut Granny Smith apple, white flowers and a whiff of river pebbles. Hints of buttered toast and the faintest expression of oak.

Palate: A beautiful elegance to this wine. Medium bodied with zingy acidity. On the palate fresh fruit on entry such as pear, quince and peach. Opens up to honeysuckle and jasmine on the mid-palate.

Finish: Lingering flavours of honeydew melon, persimmon and fresh ginger.
