My Top 10 Macedonian Wines for 2015

Ten Barrels Syrah 2012 by Chateau Kamnik, Skopje Wine District

Voted as the third best Syrah in the world at the Syrah du Monde wine competition held in France this year, this Syrah by Chateau Kamnik has once again proved that the wines coming from this winery are a dedication to their strive for perfection. The winemaking is entrusted to Sandra Krstevska, the winery’s winemaker, while the consultancy has been led by Goran Milanov, the leading Macedonian wine consultant, enologist and a winemaker guru. 

The Syrah grapes come from the winery’s vineyards located in the Skopje Wine District, at an altitude of 300 m above sea level. The wine was aged for 25 months in new American & French barriques. Complex, spicy, fruity. Abundance of spiciness on the nose, blackberry jam notes and hints of violets. The wine is multilayered especially in the taste- powerful and fruity with blackcurrants dominating and lots of chocolate, liquorice & pencil shavings notes. The price of 1300 MKD makes it a steal for this grand fruit bomb.
