Château Kamnik Temjanika 2011 (Macedonia) - Wine Review
This white wine is from the July 20 Vintages release. I was gifted this wine from a good friend of mine who is Macedonian. This was my first time tasting a wine from Macedonia, and I was quite pleasantly surprised.
CHÂTEAU KAMNIK TEMJANIKA 2011 - Skopje, Macedonia (#317305) (D) - $17.95
Made from 100% Temjanika, which is a variety of very aromatic Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains. Cork was a bit depressed inside the neck and seemed a bit loose as it was removed quite easily. Aromas of orange, incense and wild honey from the cork. Intense, full on ripe peach and tropical aromas with incense in the background from the glass. Medium-bodied with strong flavours on the palate consisting of guava, passion fruit, and tropical fruits. Off-dry with a medium-long finish. Quite nice and definitely a crowd-pleaser.
