Thirty-one days of drinking and I’m still alive and doing well. Spending the day in the heat of Skopje, the capital of the former Yugoslav republic of Macedonia (a Greek friend told me not to call it just Macedonia), and enjoying the scenery thinking about what to drink. It boiled down to either mastika, a aniseed liquor, or the famous Macedonian red wine. I don’t like aniseed and the wine was cheap so it had to be a glass of the famous red.
Alexandria cuvet. It has a deep red color and a nice fruity smell. It is hard to describe the full taste of the wine. It has a pleasant sourness that turns almost into a slight bitterness. At the same time it is fruity sweet and easy to drink. The 14% on top of the good taste makes it a really nice wine. If you are in the region you should definitely give it a try.
