Delightful topflight red with a rich and robust flavour.

Tikves Barovo is a single vineyard dry red wine from Tikves, North Macedonia. It is a blend of Kratoshija and Vranec with 15.0% abv. Suitable for Vegans.

A blend of two indigenous varieties, Kratoshija (pronounced krat-oss-shee-yah), which shares the genetic origins of Primitivo, and Vranec (vran-ash), which translates to 'black stallion' and is known for its opulence. These two varieties are planted on well-drained volcanic soils near Tikves and the grapes are handpicked so that only the finest fruit is used in Barovo. Winemaker Maro Stojakovic then cools the grapes before destemming, crushing and macerating the juice on skins for three days. Fermentation takes place in tank over 25 days. 80% of the wine is matured in new French oak for 18 months before a further six months' ageing in bottle. The result is a complex, deeply fruity full-bodied red wine with plenty of plums, blackberries and cherries over vanilla and toast.

Pairs beautifully with: Roast beef and all the trimmings, game pie, lamb stew or sweet potato topped with chilli.

Cheese pairing: Wyfe of Bath or Comte.
