Faisão Rosé 2016
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Rosé Faisão (Vinho Verde) is 50% Espadeiro, with 30% Borraçal and 20% Padeiro filling out the blend. It comes in with fizz, 18 grams per liter of residual sugar and 10.5% alcohol. Despite the sugar, this (like its white counterpart this issue) has its nice acidity making the wine seem a lot drier in perception than it might seem to be on paper. There is a little bite on the finish to go with the nice flavor. Overall, this is a friendly picnic wine, a straightforward style that handles itself well at a nice price. Drink it nicely chilled this summer.
Wine EnthusiastA light, slightly sparkling wine for summer drinking, this is off dry with good acidity and a crisp aftertaste. Drink now.
