La Manina – young generation.
Fresh and lively, vibrant, and alway easy to drink. A wine for people of today.
Grape varieties: Pinot Blanc 50 %, Sauvignon Blanc 30 %, Chardonnay 20 %. – Colour: bright yellow with greenish reflexes. – Aroma and flavour: ripe fruit flavours of quince, lychee and pink grapefruit with fresh herbal aromas of sage and mint. A light wine offering irresistible
quaffability. – Site and soil: Our Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay come from Kaltern-Mareit. The site was planted in 2010 and the first yield from the young vines was in 2013. The Sauvignon Blanc is from Siebeneich-Datumhof, where we have been using the part of the site with a slightly loamy soil for “La Manina” instead of the “Réserve della Contessa” since 2013. – Winemaking: Grapes were de-stemmed and left to macerate in the press for six hours to leach out aroma substances and body from the skins. Fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks with yeasts naturally occurring in the vineyard. The young wine was subsequently matured on the fine lees for six months to enable the aromas and flavour to evolve. – Serving suggestions: enjoy lightly chilled (50 – 54 °F) – Food recommendations: first courses, vegetarian dishes, fish and white meat dishes.
