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.
Tonight we are going to review a rosé wine, as we firmly believe that it’s the perfect wine style for those first spring days, that warm us a little bit more with each passing week. The wine we’ve picked for the review today is Merlot Rosé from Radacini – a relatively new name on the stage, so let’s see how good it is.
Take a look at the tasting notes bellow and our detailed assessment of the wine:
Wolfberry pink color, with shades of pinkish-grey towards the rim.
The nose is rich, filled mostly with sweet fruit: cranberry, raspberry, red apple, wolfberry, red currant, pomegranate, red mirabelle, sicilia orange, berberis and some subtle hints of cherry blossom.
The wine is medium-dry, with high alcohol level, high acidity and smooth tannin. It tastes lean, fruity and zesty, with a fair, mellow body. The wine has a fair overall balance, as this is a fresh, crisp and flavour-rich rosé wine, with overwhelming acidity.
The wine has a medium finish and a balanced aftertaste.
This is definitely a fine Wine of Moldova and the overall rating says the same, with 88.9 points scored it is right there, among the best wines we’ve tasted so far.

Conclusion: a nice, fresh and fruity rosé wine in its peak form, definitely a ‘drink now’ wine, which is not age-worthy. We would recommend to pair it with fresh berries or some light desserts, like for example a grilled banana with maple creme fraiche or a maple berry parfait.
