Manna is a tribute to Franz's wife, Maria Luisa Manna. Franz has spent years making this wine in his quest for the best wine in the gastronomic field. He found this wine in an exceptional blend of the best Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Rich diverse scents of pistachio and roses and a taste that is complex and concentrated. A combination of soft ripe flavors and mineral structure.
The Manna 2019 is a blend of 40% Riesling, 20% Chardonnay, 15% Gewürztraminer, 15% Kerner and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. Only the Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc are fermented in oak. The wine's bouquet is quite extensive and layered, and it is almost impossible to distinguish a single varietal. Instead, the carefully integrated blend presents a lively bouquet with stone fruit, candied lemon and some spicy cumin seeds. There is also a clear floral component with honeysuckle and jasmine, and finally the wine delivers a nice mineral note. Because of its distinctive blend, this Manna has it all. A fantastic glass of wine and drink it with chicken marinated in Moroccan herbs. Delicious!!
Franz Haas has an incredible height difference in his vineyards starting from 220 meters above sea level (where Lagrein is planted) to a whopping 1150 meters altitude (where Pinot Nero is planted). These are some of the highest vineyards in Alto Adige.
ABOUT FRANZ HAAS
Founded in 1880, the Franz Haas winery is located in the beautiful Alto-Adige area on the border of Austria and Italy. Since then, the company has been working on the road for seven generations. The winery was always passed down to sons of the same name, Franz. In the 1980s, most of the vineyards were renewed, creating space for new varieties that better suit the type of “terroir” of the region.
The grapes come from 55 hectares of vineyards. The vineyards start at an altitude of 220 meters, rising to 1,150 meters. There is a wide variety of microclimates and soils, from clay to limestone. The vineyards are among the highest vineyards in Alto Adige.
The choice of planting vines at these altitudes has proven that optimal and aromatic wines can be produced with a nice acidity. Large temperature differences between day and night and an enormous attention to the vineyards have also helped.
