CHARDONNAY

In Macedonia, it can be mostly found in Skopje, Veles and Tikves districts, with a tendency of further spreading. It ripens at the beginning of September in the Tikves vineyards, and determining the opti¬mal date for harvest is of exceptional signifi¬cance for the quality of wine production.

The Macedonian wines from Chardonnay variety generally have two characteristic styles.
The first one is characterized by its fresh¬ness and fruity aromas dominate, like apple, citrus and banana.
