Manincor Moscato Giallo 750ML 2014   
Sku: 37091

Manincor Moscato Giallo is ana excellent dry and still (not sparkling) Moscato. Clean and well-balanced, this has sophisticated grass notes and is actually best viewed as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting notes
Intense golden yellow in colour, this seductive wine displays a ravishing floral perfume together with nutmeg, cedar, apricot and grapey fruit supported by a streak of racy, vibrant acidity.

Producer notes
As in the previous year, the winter was unusually wet. That created perfect conditions for our vines to flourish throughout the year and survive the dry periods without showing symptoms of drought stress. The first green appeared on the vines very early, on March 20. The vines nevertheless flowered as normal at the end of May. The weeks of June were hot and dry, with temperatures as high as 36°C. But that was also the end of the real summer; July and August brought damp and rainy weather. Under such conditions, it was a challenge to produce really mature grapes. With a combination of excellent sites, an enormous amount of manual work, and increased use of our biodynamic preparations, however, we were largely able to compensate for the reduced hours of sunshine. The result was a 20% loss in terms of volume, but the quality of the vintage remains impressive. At 200 hours per hectare, the Muscat harvest was enormously laborintensive, and the yield, namely 28 hl per hectare, was correspondingly low.

Technical notes
100% Goldmuskateller (“Golden Muscat”)

Grapes were de-stemmed and left to macerate in the press for twelve hours to enrich the juice with aroma substances and body leached from the skins. Fermentation took place in oak and stainless steel tanks, partially with yeasts naturally occurring in the vineyard. The young wine was subsequently matured on the fine lees for five months to enable the aromas and flavor to evolve.

Other text

The “Vogelleiten” site in the Manincor estate, likewise an extremely steep slope with soils consisting of clay and limestone gravel.

Food pairing
The wine is delicious as an aperitif it makes a wonderful partner to spicy Chinese and Thai foods or mature hard cheeses.
