Big G Magnum, Holden Manz
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Merlot
Wine Region: Franschhoek, South Africa
Tasting Notes: Ruby red; aromas of black cherries, plums, subtle herbaceousness, nuances of pine needle, blueberry and spearmint with hints of cedar wood and pencil shavings. Soft, voluptuous mouth feel, integrated tannins. Silky smooth mid palate with a finish full of dark fruit and long lingering flavours.
The Holden Manz Big G is the estate's signature wine. Focused on the counterpoint between the two cabernets - parent and child - it variously incorporates merlot depending on the particular characteristics of each vintage.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Pair with beef Wellington or winter warming daube de boeuf.
