Description

Tikves Winery in the Macedonian region of the same name have been narratinvg the Republic of North Macedonia’s winemaking story since 1885. This wine uses sustainably cultivated indigenous variety Vranec (flasghip grape known as 'Black 'Maiden' for its deep colour and full, powerful wines) and international variety Merlot (bringing a touch of soft balance). Grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks before the wine is pressed off its skins, cold stabilised, filtered and bottled with minimal sulphur.

Cuvee Methodius is a youthful, fresh wine of deep purple colour with vibrant aromas of blueberries, blackberries, subtle chocolate and cocoa. The full palate is harmoniously balanced, with ripe, smooth tannins and juicy plum and blackberry flavours. Try with red meats, rich stews, barbecue cuisine or hard cheeses.

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. The Tikveš vineyards are sustainably cultivated, with 80% of the vines planted on the slopes of hillside plots with east or south easterly orientation. Tikves Winery vinify in their state-of-the-art cellar resulting in a series of authentic and characterful wines.
