Holden Manz Visionaire 2013
Intense dark red colour with a bright edge.
Blend: Merlot 35%, Cabernet Sauvignon 25%, Syrah 20%, Cabernet Franc 11%, Malbec 5%, Petit Verdot 4%
Brimming with red berry and mulberry flavours, with subtle notes of spicy white pepper, fynbos and violets in early spring.
Smooth elegant palate with mid-palate ripeness and spicy, slightly grippy finish. Red and black fruits dominate balanced with a graphite steeliness. The tannins are firm yet refined and exquisitely round off the aromas of spice and fresh plum. The multiple components of Visionaire allow each to show off its own unique characters while combining to produce an experience greater than the parts – each varietal a celebrated soloist combining with the orchestra of the blend!
Personal Food pairing:
Rosemary roasted Karoo lamb chops or a fine 30 day plus air dried fillet steak with a pepper sauce! This wine is complex – keep the food simple to enjoy in its natural goodness.
