Franschhoek Wine Valley


Franschhoek Vignerons recognized at Cabernet Franc Challenge

The annual Cabernet Franc Challenge recently took place at Avontuur Estate in Stellenbosch which saw Holden Manz and My Wyn were recognized for producing superb wines. Winners were selected for wines of outstanding complexity and elegance.

A total of 50 entries were received, and the wines were judged by an esteemed panel, which included Christine Rudman, Tinashe Nyamudoka, Samarie Smith, Anita Streicher-Nel and Lizette Tolken.

The My Wyn Cabernet Franc 2015 made it onto the list of the Top Six Cabernet Francs in South Africa for 2018.

The Holden Manz Cabernet Franc Reserve 2013 was chosen at the Best Vintage Wine and they also received a Gold Medal for their Cabernet Franc 2015.

Chamonix also received Gold for its Cabernet Franc 2015.

The 2015 vintage has without a doubt proven to be a stellar year for these producers.

Consumers will get the opportunity to sample the Top Six at the Cabernet Franc Carnival, which takes place at Avontuur Estate on 19 May. The wines will be available for tasting at one of three tutored tastings on the day. For additional info and ticket bookings visit www.plankton.mobi.
