Prokupec is a red wine grape variety indigenous to the former Yugoslavia. Today the variety is found in large quantities in Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo , although it remains largely unknown outside of its homeland. It is most commonly used to produce rosé wines and in blends, although an increasingly number of producers are experimenting with varietal red wines.
Prokupec rosé wines are generally a deep ruby in color, much darker than traditional pink or blush rosés. These wines have aromas of strawberries and rose petals. The red wines are also deep ruby in color and tend to show red fruit flavors like cherry. Prokupec is known for its high sugar levels and therefore high potential alcohol. It is often blended with more international grape varieties like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.
