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 just because we can, 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 is Prestige Rosé de Cricova 2015 from Cricova – a local winemaker famous for the outstanding quality of sparkling wines.

Olfactory

The nose is rich, filled mostly with sour fruit: cranberry, red currant, raspberry, peach, wolfberry, red mirabelle, gooseberry, red plum, red apple, soured apple and some subtle hints of red nectarine.

gustatory_rose
Gustatory

The wine is dry, with high alcohol level, high acidity and smooth tannin. It tastes tart, rough and unbalanced. The wine has a fair overall balance and it feels a bit austere, refreshing and quite sharp.

aftertaste_rose
Aftertaste

The wine has a medium finish and a quite astringent aftertaste.

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. 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 not a your regular rosé wine, as it is a bit unbalanced – a wine that is not near or near-about its top form – this is a rosé that requires food pairing. We would recommend to pair this one with salmon fish based dishes or some langoustines with lemon and butter.
