Bright scintillating yellow in the glass. Initially the aroma is fruity, reminiscent of apricot, orange, acacia and lime blossom, while in depth it is mineral-like, redolent of wet stone; full-bodied and strong on the palate though nevertheless slender with a lasting mineral-like quality on the finish.  

Grape variety:
96% Chardonnay, 4% Viognier.  

Production area:
The grapes are grown in equal quantities in the ''Lieben Aich'' site at Terlan, and in the ''Mazzon'' site near Kaltern. The Lieben Aich vineyard at Terlan is on a warm, west-facing slope at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level where Chardonnay and Sauvignon thrive in well-drained soils consisting of sand and clay mixed with eroded porphyry. Chardonnay and Viognier in the Mazzon site grow in the steepest vineyard in the parcel called ''Leiten'' with a gradient of up to 100%. It is south-west facing at an altitude between 350 to 400 metres above sea level with a unique microclimate and soils comprising clay and loess with a high content of calcium carbonate. 

Grapes were de-stemmed and left to macerate in the press for six hours to leach out aroma substances and body from the skins. Pressing was extremely slow and attentive, for our aim is to obtain a wine of maximum elegance. Fermentation took place in oak barrels of varying sizes using yeasts naturally occurring in the vineyards followed by a maturation period on the fine lees lasting nine months to enable the aroma and flavour to develop.

Manincor Organic Winery 
The 400 year-old wine estate, carefully and prudently extended by the wine cellar built beneath the vines and hardly noticeable from above, epitomises today the tradition and aspirations of a superior wine culture. 

When Count Michael Goëss-Enzenberg took over Manincor from his uncle in 1991 the estate’s grape production was highly in demand, though it had no winery of its own and the grapes from its top sites were sold to the Kaltern and Terlan Wine-growers’ Cooperative Cellars. This soon changed. The aim was to produce top quality grapes and transform them into superlative wines in an immediately recognisable Manincor style. 
Efforts initially went into the work in the vineyards, quality was increased by reducing yield per vine and eventually vineyard husbandry was carried out along more natural lines. Finally in 1996 the estate was able to begin crushing the grape production in a cellar of its own. 
The Enzenberg family has been involved with the topic of biodynamics from the start. 2006 was the first year in which all the vineyards were cultivated on biodynamic lines, and since 2009 the entire estate has been legally certified as 100% biodynamic. 
Count Michael Goëss-Enzenberg on the estate’s philosophy: „… Our mission to achieve the highest natural quality also involves a quest to find for the best possible means down to the tiniest detail. Manincor’s wines should be characterised by elegance and finesse, underpinned by impressive structure and backbone."

fine floreal scent of violets, rose and lilac, but it also shows its fruity side with aromas of citrus fruits and a clear muscat note. On the palate it presents itself fresh and balanced with an animating fruit-acid-play and a delicate spice. Wine obtained from biological grapes.Bottle to: 750 ml - 75 cl - 0,75 lt.
