Manna, a very individual wine which Franz Haas has dedicated to his wife Maria Luisa Manna, is a blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, a late Traminer Aromatico harvest and a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc. While young, the wine has a nuanced golden yellow appearance, but after several years of aging, intense golden tones appear. Thanks to its individual characteristics, Manna seduces with a complex and layered bouquet recalling notes of elderflower, pistachios and rose petals. It stands out also for its complexity and concentrations, combined with a soft elegance and a mineral structure. During the many phases of its development, this wine displays different characteristics and perspectives, changing both in the bottle and in the glass, continuing to surprise and amaze.
The grapes, because of different maturing times, are harvested and worked separately. The Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes are fermented in barriques, while the Riesling and the Traminer Aromatico ferment in steel vats. At the final fermentation the young wines are put together to encourage harmonisation of the different aromatic components. After a period of resting on its yeasts for about ten months, the wine is bottled and ultimately aged in the bottle for a few months.
