    Winners and judges in the 2019 Cab FRanc Challenge

    Holden Manz’s Cabernet Franc 2017 is a rich and elegant soft textured wine with predominant cassis and dark berries. Well balanced savoury flavours with good volume. The wood is well integrated, with pleasantly subtle tannins, resulting in a balanced wine with a long finish with an abundance of spice and mocha.

    My Wyn winemaker Jacolien Haasbroek describes the Les Grandes Horizontales 2015 as a blend four different varieties, which was matured in French oak for 26 months. This wine is the ultimate in feminine complexity. Velvety on the palate, with the promise and intrigue of a lingering experience.
