Temjanika is a variety that requires warm climate,
with long and dry autumns that will create perfect condition for grapes to stay longer in the vine and absorb more sugar. Later, it can be turned into dry grape for production of natural dessert wines with high percentage of alcohol.
Under the conditions of the Tikves wine district it ripens in late August or early September and produces high quality dry, semi dry and dessert muscat wines. The Macedonian Temjanika has an intense yellowish-gold color with nuances of green and highly complex and odorous scents. Main aromas are those of Muscat and are spicy; fruit scents of peach, apricot, dry plum and orange are dominant at the beginning, while the flavour of basil and incense follow later.
The Temjanika wine is served at a temperature of 10-12 degrees, and can be consumed with light food, white meat, seafood and desserts.
