2018 SMEDEREVKA, ‘Belo’, Tikveš. Tikveš, Macedonia
Alcohol Percentage: 11%
Area: The Tikveš region is in central Macedonia - and that's the republic of Macedonia, formerly in Yugoslavia, not Macedonia in northern Greece (but the two namesakes are neighbours).
Grape Variety: 90% Smederevka, 10% Riesling; fermented cool and bottled young to retain maximum freshness.
Producer: The impressively modern winery is called Tikveš, after the region. They specialise in local, indigenous grapes, of which Smed-er-EV-car is the most planted (and also important in neighbouring Serbia).
Old Bridge Rating: Light, lively, charming white offering real value for money.
