Modern red

Tikveš Alexandria Red Cuvée 2016, Republic of Macedonia, AUD $22

This blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and the local grape vranec is a beautifully crafted modern red that drinks well young. With a deep red/purple colour and a ripe bouquet of dark fruits, aniseed and chocolate, it has a bright, medium to full-bodied palate, well-endowed with tannin – which contributes structure and ageing potential.
