WineStatistics will be evaluating wines in no particular order on no particular schedule. Just stay tuned and you will never miss one. If the wine is tasted more than once, the rating table will be updated so as to reflect all the new impressions and observations. The logic is simple – the more we taste, the more we learn.

We switch back to Wine of Moldova and straight to the rosé wine theme. Even though the summer is well behind us, the summer hype is still floating in the air, so we’ve decided to pick a wine that will blend those hot days with the cooling nights, a wine little known to wine lovers, but a wine that is gaining popularity on a regular basis, so here it is – Rosé 2015 from Minis Terrios.

Let’s take a deeper look at the tasting notes and the wine’s review statistics:

Visual
The wine has a pure, salmon pink color, bright and transparent – with the rim-color of a bright orange shade.

Olfactory

The nose is rich and a bit closed. The first nose brings clear notes of sour fruits and some savory flavors: yellow tomato, wolfberry, rose hip, cherry tomato, red bell pepper, underripe red cherry, sour watermelon, red gooseberry and red mirabelle. Later on, the nose is filled with some moist wood notes, subtle at first, but quite insistent with time.

gustatory_rose
Gustatory

The wine is dry, with no hints of residual sugar. It has high alcohol level, high acidity and dry tannin, which makes it taste savory, green and a bit tart. The wine has a weak overall balance, it feels rough, angular and mouldy, but quite tight and plain on the palate.

Aftertaste

The wine has a short-plus finish, with a balanced, a bit bitter aftertaste – the wine lacks some character, but it feels quite fresh overall.

chartsThis is definitely a fair Wine of Moldova and the overall rating says the same, with 87.0 points scored it is right there, among the best wines we’ve tasted so far.

Last but not least, we would really want to mention that we do like the color spectrum of this wine. It is quite different from the vast majority of rosé wines of Moldova, it’s has quite some hints of a a classic Provence rosé wine – pale salmon pink or onion peel color, a subtle bright orange that mesmerizes the sight and brings some stillness to the mind. Another aspect of this wine that made us nod in approval is the grape variety used, as we are really found of feteasca neagra, one of the noblest indigenous grape varieties of Moldova.
