Sturdy fare from a country whose wines we rarely see…

Stobi Vranec Classic 2011, Tikves, Macedonia (£10-11 Cornelius Wines, Cork & Cask, Wine Rack, House of Townend, Turton Wines, North Coast Wine Co)
Deep in colour, and stuffed with dark fleshy berry and kirsch flavours. Also packs in notes of coffee and dark chocolate, but while I like these and the velvety texture, maybe it’s just a bit too ripe, and there’s always that central European earthy beetroot/tomato character lurking in the background. B+
