Ezimit Terra Makedonika 2012
Wine made from the blend of the highest quality of 50% Vranec, 25% Syrah and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is aged in American Oak for 18 months and infused with a secret blend of spices to create one of the most unique Macedonian wines.
This luscious blend is from partially dried grapes and – for an unusual touch – infused with just a dash of locally grown herbs, including thyme. Soft cherry and lingonberry aromas lead to a palate exuding notes of black cherry, mulberry and a hint of liquorice. Long and spicy with a bit of cinnamon stick on the finish. Juicy acidity so beautifully integrated.
Through an innovative process and unique recipe, the wine was made to capture the precious wildflowers and herbs essentials.
The grapes are manually harvested in late September. The wine undergoes cold maceration for 2 days followed by skin maceration for 12 at an average temperature of 23 degrees. The wine is then allowed to age in American oak for 18 months.
