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.

Today we are going to review a rosé wine, as we firmly believe that a chilled glass of rosé is the perfect company for those hot summer days. The wine we’ve picked for the review today is Merlot Rosé 2015 from F’autor – a local winemaker famous for the outstanding quality of the wines.

Visual
Pastel red color, with shades of pale red towards the rim of the glass.

olfactory_rose
Olfactory

The nose is strong, filled with a mix of sour and sweet fruit: raspberry, red mirabelle, red cherry, cranberry, wolfberry, red currant, berberis, rose flower and some subtle hints of pomegranate.

gustatory_rose
Gustatory

The wine is dry, with high alcohol level, high acidity and smooth tannin. It tastes tart, s bit seedy and jammy, with a crisp and fresh body. The wine has a fair overall balance, as this is a fruity wine with a delicious candy accent and well integrated acidity.

aftertaste_rose
Aftertaste

The wine has a medium finish and a balanced aftertaste.

chartsThis is definitely a fine Wine of Moldova and the overall rating says the same, with 89.4 points scored it is right there, among the best wines we’ve tasted so far. Please click on the chart icon on the left in order to get to the wine rating page, where you can find all the wines we’ve tasted to date.

Conclusion: this is a lean, fresh and fruity rosé wine in its peak form, definitely ready to ‘drink now’, which does not require any more bottle ageing. We would recommend to pair this one with light desserts, like for example some jelly & custard desserts or with some oven-baked apples dressed with cinnamon & raisins.
