Tikves Cuvee Cyril 2020

A spicy and refreshing wine with an appealing floral
aroma and complementing apricot flavours through to a
lifted mineral finish.
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
A blend of Smederevka (pronounced Smed-er-EV-car); Rekaciteli (pronounced Rekachee-TEL-ly) and Chardonnay - the former two are indigenous varieties to the Republic
of North Macedonia. Smederevka is the leading grape variety for white wines in the
region and Rekaciteli is an ancient variety which produces crisp wines with floral notes.
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 mostly well drained clay soils which are rich in carbonates.
Their roots extend to 70cm below the surface, into this nutrient-rich soil layer. Green
harvesting takes place to reduce the yields and naturally concentrate the flavours in
the grapes. The grapes are manually harvested when they have reached optimal
ripeness.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted, destemmed and pressed. Each variety was vinified
separately. The juice was clarified by sedimentation and then fermented under
temperature controlled conditions in stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
An off-dry sensation of ripe stone fruits, melon, mango and tropical fruit flavours is
underpinned by a fresh citrus note. Hints of minerality and delicate floral notes enhance
the refreshing palate and long lasting finish.
