Producer Note
Every wine tells a story about the synergy between the soil, sun, grapes and the country
of its origin. The Tikveš Winery has been narrating the Republic of North Macedonia’s
story as a winemaking country since 1885. However, the Republic of North Macedonia
remains one of Europe’s last undiscovered wine countries: it is a natural paradise of
vineyards, mountains, lakes and rivers, with a climate perfectly suited to producing
quality grapes. Located in the Tikveš region, the Tikveš estate sustainably cultivates
indigenous varieties such as Smederevka, Vranec and Kratoshija. The grapes are
vinified in the state-of-the-art cellar equipped with the latest technology under the
watchful eye of illustrious consultant oenologist Philippe Cambie, resulting in a series of
authentic and characterful wines.
Vintage
The Tikves region saw warm weather with modest temperatures throughout the summer
of 2018, compared to the extremely hot weather experienced in the rest of Europe. As
a result the vines did not suffer any water stress and produced healthy grapes. The
wines show concentrated flavours with perfectly balanced sugar and acidity.
Vineyard
A blend of two indigenous varieties, Kratoshiya (pronounced krat-oss-SHEE-yah) has the
same genetic origins as the Italian Primitivo variety. Vranec (pronounced VRAN-ash)
translates as 'black stallion' and wine made from this grape variety is associated with
strength and opulence. The double Guyot trained vines are grown in a hilly plot with a
south eastern orientation. Planted in well drained volcanic soils, the roots extend to a
depth of 1.2 metres, where the soil is enriched with carbonates, minerals. This complex
nutrition level imparts richness to the resulting wines. The vines are green harvested
before véraison in order to further concentrate the flavours within the grapes. Harvest is
undertaken manually, in order to ensure the grapes are picked at their optimum
maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were cooled for 12 hours, destemmed, crushed and cold macerated for
three days. Vinification took place over the course of 25 days, with regular pumpingover taking place in order to extract the desired levels of tannins, colour and flavours.
Pressing took place in a pneumatic press which was followed by malolactic conversion.
80% of the wine was aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months, followed by a
minimum of six months bottle ageing.
Tasting Note
Complex and elegant aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries combine with subtle
hints of vanilla and rich toasty notes. Beautifully textured with a mouth-filling palate of
ripe berried fruits against a mineral backdrop and a long lasting finish.
