Manna is a unique wine that Franz has dedicated to Maria Luisa; first released in 1995, it is a cuvée of Riesling and Chardonnay, a part of Gewürztraminer and a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc; starting with the vintage of 2013, Kerner has been added by decreasing the percentages of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. The vines of the five vineyards are located at an altitude between 350 and 800 meters above sea level. The soils are very different from each other and are of dolomite, porphyry, sandy and marble origin, facing southwest.
In its youth, the wine has yellow-golden notes, and after a few years of evolving, intense golden tones appear. Thanks to its special characteristics Manna seduces with a complex and stratified bouquet that suggests notes of elderflowers, pistachios and rose petals. It strikes with its complexity and concentration combined with a soft elegance and a mineral structure. Manna is a versatile wine, always transforming, the different grape varieties give this wine different notes and the high percentage of Riesling contributes to keeping it alive over the years.
