Tikves Cuvee Cyril
Grapes: Smederevka, Rekatsiteli, Chardonnay, Temjanika
A blend of three indigenous grape varieties to the Republic of North Macedonia alongside classic Chardonnay. Smederevka is the leading grape variety for white wines in the region; Rekatsiteli is an ancient variety which produces crisp wines with floral notes; and Temjanika is thought to be a variety of Muscat with intense perfume. 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 result is a spicy and refreshing wine with an appealing floral aroma and complementing apricot and pineapple flavours. 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.
