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
Kratoshija (pronounced Krat-oss-SHEE-yah) is a native grape with a long history in the
Republic of North Macedonia which has the same genetic origins as the Italian Primitivo
variety. 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 fruity aromatics. When fermentation was complete, the young wine was pressed off
its skins in a pneumatic press and underwent malolactic conversion on its lees,
softening the palate. The wine was cold stabilised, filtered and bottled with minimal
sulphur.
Tasting Note
Bright aromas of redcurrants, cherry and red berries lead to a textured and mouth-filling
palate with vibrant fruit forward flavours and a deliciously satisfying finish.
