T'ga Za Jug Vranec

LONGING FOR THE SOUTH

Yesterday I drank this very nice Macedonian semi-dry T'ga za Jug red wine.

The wine is made of the native grape variety Vranec. It has an intense red color, and the distinctive taste of raisins and raspberries, which make it a nice sweet treat (hence: semi-dry).

The wine is named after the poem ‘Taga za Yug’ of the Bulgarian poet Konstantin Miladinov (1830–1862), one of the Miladinov brothers, who originate from Ottoman Macedonia. Both brothers are thought to have laid the foundation of the Macedonian literary tradition.

‘Taga za Yug’ means ‘longing for the South’ (el anhelo por el Sur): "If I had an eagle's wings, I would rise and fly on them to our shores, to our own parts [...] Here are frost and snow and ashes, blizzards and harsh winds abound [...] There the sunrise warms the soul".

When it is cold outside, and fiercely raining, I can assure you that it makes you long for the sun that warms the soul. Drinking the T'ga za Jug wine in good company and nice surroundings makes for a wonderful or sometimes even better alternative.

Limited Edition Grand Cru Vranac 2005

12 years old, one of the oldest wines I've tried. Colour is red-brownish, very light fruity smell, low acidity, mild dry wine, tastes like berry fruit with some vanilla flavour and traces of earth. Structured, complex, rich in secondary aromas, long subtle aftertaste. Balanced now, but I think it would lose on quality if saved for another few years. Definitely one of the most balanced, rounded wines I've tried. — 5 years ago
