Temjanica is a grape variety that does not have an exact and known origin, and it is assumed that it originates from the Middle East. It represents one of the oldest and most widespread varieties in the world, and in Macedonia it is most represented in Tikveshia. The variety got its name from the pronounced smell of violets.
Thyme ripens in late August or early September, on light and moderately moist soils. It is the most suitable muscat variety for warm vineyards. It has a medium yield. The grapes have a thick, wormy skin with a green-yellow color, on the sunny side there are rusty spots. The juice is colorless with a distinct nutmeg smell.
