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 nutrientrich 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.
