Smederevka grapes

by | Mar 1, 2017

Smedeverka is a famous variety of white wine grape that is grown in the regions of Smederevo in Serbia as well as Tikves wine-growing region of Macedonia.


The name of this white wine grape variety has been derived from the Smederevo city of Serbia.

The plantation and cultivation of this white wine grape variety are believed to have done during the reign of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Probus at the site known as Mons Aureus, that is situated on the right bank of the river Danube near Smederevo.

This grape variety is considered as a very popular variety of grape of the Balkans.

Whether this white wine grape variety is planted outside southeastern Europe or not has been under the wraps as of now.

However, the reports suggest that this grape variety is mostly planted within the regions of Europe only, specifically in the provinces of Vojvodina and Hungary.

This white wine grape variety is mostly concerned with the preparation of varietal wines. At the very same time, it is also blended with other famous varieties of grapes in the Balkans.

Welschriesling is considered as the most common blending partner of this white wine grape variety.

The vines of this grape ripen relatively late during their growing season and the berries so produced are considered to be very high in terms of their levels of natural sugars as well as acidity.

Wine grape varieties

To be more specific, these wines ripe in the beginning of October, resulting in some very high yields.

These vines are considered to be very sensitive to the low temperatures and therefore they are required to be grown in the warmer regions on the healthy, fertile as well as deep soils.

The grapes of these vines are oval as to their shape. These grapes are thin, hard and translucent and they adorn a greenish-yellow color.

The resulting wines produced out of this white wine grape varieties are neither restrained in nature nor soft.

According to a few sources, the grape variety is the same grape variety as Dimiat, a famous Bulgarian variety that is planted widely around the regions of Black Sea coast. However, the DNA profiling of both these wines in terms of their similarity is yet to be confirmed.

Apart from Welschriesling, some other popular varieties that use this white wine grape variety as an important blend include the grape varieties like Dimayat Chardonnay, TikveaDimayat, DimayarReggina Estate Vala as well as the famous Tikves Mac International Smederevka White.
