Winemaking

La Rose de Manincor is the result of the top red wine batches being made by the saignée method, i.e. bleeding off a proportion of wine after only short contact with the skins – in this case 6 to 12 hours; it increases the ratio of skins to juice in the vat in order to obtain a red wine with more colour and tannin. Consequently the composition and character of the rosé wine may vary slightly from year to year. The lightly coloured juice so obtained is fermented in oak barrels partially using yeasts occurring naturally on the grapes. The young wine is subsequently matured on the fine lees to allow the aromas and flavour to develop.

Site and soil

Our best red wine sites in Manincor, at Seehof, Panholzerhof and in Mazzon, between 250 and 500 m above sea-level, with strong clayey soils interspersed with limestone gravel and other glacial rock deposits.

Vintage

2019 was not a year for volume, but in terms of quality it was very good and in some cases excellent. The new shoots appeared early, but cold and wet weather in April and May held back vegetation growth to such an extent that it became a late year. A long ripening period in combination with a golden autumn finally created the conditions for a great vintage. From the end of September to the end of October we were able to harvest the grapes for all our red wines with perfect timing. The yield was 45 hl per hectare.

Description and food recommendations

Bright salmon red in colour with a bouquet reminiscent of raspberry and cherry, juicy and creamy on the palate, excellent length with a mineral-fruity aftertaste.

Enjoy at optimum maturity from early summer 2020 to the end of 2023. Serve: very lightly chilled but not cold; 46 - 50 °F

An excellent match for well-seasoned first courses, fried or smoked fish as well as dishes of white and grilled meats.
