North Macedonia remains one of Europe’s last undiscovered wine countries. It’s a natural paradise with a climate perfectly suited to producing high quality grapes.
Located in the Tikveš region, the Tikveš estate, established in the 1800s, sustainably cultivates indigenous varieties seldom seen over here such as Smederevka, Vranec and Kratoshija under the watchful eye of acclaimed oenologist Philippe Cambie.
Vranec (pronounced VRAN-ash) translates literally as ‘ a powerful horse’. It also means ‘black,’ and wine made from this grape variety is associated with punch, strength and opulence.
As you’d expect, this wine is deeply coloured, full-bodied and full of blueberry and blackberry aromas, with hints of dark chocolate chocolate.
