Tikves Smederevka 2020

Tropical and stone fruit aromas are underpinned by an
attractive floral note streak of zesty citrus.


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
Smederevka (pronounced Smed-er-EV-car) is an indigenous variety native to the
Tikveš area of the Republic of North Macedonia and is the leading variety for white
wines in the region. The 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. Therefore 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 to retain freshness.


Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted, destemmed and pressed via a pneumatic press.
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
A pale lemon wine delivering tropical and stone fruit aromas underpinned by a
streak of zesty citrus. Beautifully balanced on the palate with crisp and refreshing fruit
flavours through to a clean, vibrant finish.
