Tikves Cuvée Cyril 2018

Pale yellow colour with a sense of ripe fruit flavours of melon, mango and tropical fruits with hints of minerality and delicate floral notes. It is refreshing on the palate with a lasting and lingering finish.

Blend of 60% Smederevka, 20% Chardonnay and 20% Rekaciteli. Smederevka is the leading grape variety for white wines in the region and Rekaciteli is an ancient variety which produces crisp wines with floral notes.

The Tikveš wine sub-region is situated on the same longitude as Toscana in Italy, Bordeaux in France and the Napa valley in the USA. It is one of the biggest regions in Macedonia by square area and it is situated at latitude of 41-42˚. The climate is mixed, Continental-Mediterranean. The south of the Tikveš region is dominated by a Mediterranean climate featuring long and hot summers.

The Tikveš region is “protected” on three sides by mountains which prevent the northern winds from reaching the vineyards. The following types of soil prevail in the Tikveš region: Rendzina, Vertisol, deluvial, alluvial soil and Terra Rosa.
