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.
Vineyard
Vranec (pronounced VRAN-ash) translates as 'strong, powerful horse' and wine made
from this grape variety is associated with strength and opulence. Vranec also means
black, and is often referred to as the 'black wine’ locally. The Tikveš vineyards are
sustainably cultivated, with 80% of the vines planted on the slopes of hillside plots with
east or south easterly orientation. The vines are double Guyot trained and are planted
in well drained clay soils which are rich in carbonates and naturally encourage high
yields. Green harvesting takes place to reduce the yields and concentrate the flavours
in the grapes. The grapes are manually harvested when they have reached optimal
ripeness and maturity and are transported immediately to the winery.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain
the purity of fruit. When fermentation was complete, the young wine was pressed off its
skins in a pneumatic press, cold stabilised, filtered and bottled with minimal sulphur.
Tasting Note
A deeply coloured red wine revealing vibrant aromas of blueberries and blackberries,
with hints of chocolate and cocoa. Full bodied and harmoniously balanced, with ripe,
smooth tannins and juicy plum and blackberry flavours.
