Sv. Trifun Red
St. Trifun is the protector of grapevine and wine. Every year on February 14th in Macedonia is the celebration of the Day of St. Trifun. On this day grape growers are pruning the first vine and taking a piece of the blessed grapevine for good luck and good yields.
Sv. Trifun Red from Bovin is generous wine with a nice bouquet of dried strawberries, dark cherries, vanilla and chocolate. The taste is mediumbodied with freshful fruit, nicely balanced velvetlylike tannins giving a complex wine, expressing good grapes and good winemaking. The wine should be served at 15-17°C with beef, roasted pork, lamb, grilled meats and especially Macedonian clay dishes.
