Tikves Kratosija Crveno Macedonia 2019
Kratosija is a native of Macedonia believed to be related to the Zinfandel grape. Intensely fruity, this can be served lightly chilled.
Bright aromas of redcurrants, cherry and red berries lead to a textured and mouthfilling palate with vibrant fruit forward flavours and a deliciously satisfying finish.
Every wine tells a story about the synergy between the soil, sun, grapes and the country of its origin. The Tikveš Winery has been narrating the Republic of Macedonia’s story as a winemaking country since 1885. However, the Republic of 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. Located in the Tikveš region of central Macedonia, the Tikveš estate sustainably cultivates indigenous varieties such as Smederevka, Vranec and Kratoshija. The grapes are vinified in the state-of-the-art cellar equipped with the latest technology under the watchful eye of illustrious consultant oenologist Philippe Cambie, resulting in a series of authentic and characterful wines.
Kratoshija is a native grape with a long history in the Republic of Macedonia which has the same genetic origins as the Italian Primitivo variety.
