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.
