Food Pairings for Tikve Vranec "Special Selection"
"Hand-crafted with passion and patience, Tikves wines are emblematic of Macedonia's ancient tradition of winemaking. Located in the heart of Macedonia's wine country, their wines reflect over 120 years of a culture that celebrates the entire wine experience - from growth, to harvest to fermentation to the most significant part, enjoyment with family and friends. The Tikves winery is the oldest winery in Macedonia; it began in 1885. Today is the exemplar of a modern and innovative winery. The winery uses sustainable practices throughout its operations including limiting the use of treatment of the vines, reducing consumption of both energy and water, building solar panes for self-sustainable energy and a commitment to recycling waste and turning it into natural fertilizer. Philippe Cambie is an advisor for the property." "Aged in premium quality oak barrels this dry red wine has luscious aromas of overripe berries and dry plums, with hints of oak, smoke, chocolate and fresh spices. The taste of the wine reveals excellent balance of alcohol, acids, tannins and extracts that reach their peak in a perfectly harmonious finish." "The vineyards are located at an altitude of1500 feet so temperatures remain cool, due to a constant breeze. Humidity is very low, averaging 30% in the summer months." - Importer Tasting Notes "Intense ruby red color with rich aromas of wild berries. The taste reveals dry plums and matured morello cherries in good harmony with sweet tannins. Overall, this wine is complex and intense. It pairs well with spicy and strong dishes and grilled meat, including beef, lamb, duck and wild game." - Importer
