If you do a quick search for the word Cooper on this website you will find a slew of reviews. It is super close to where I work and they make really good wine. Last year, I tasted but didn’t review a very good white wine of theirs. So now I bring you the review for the newer version the 2013 Cooper Vineyards Chardonel.
The Chardonel grape is a cross of Seyval and Chardonnay. Now you can see where they get the name. On Cooper Vineyard’s website they do not have a description with tasting notes so once again you will just have to trust me.
This will be a quick one. So how was the wine?
Color – Light transparent yellow
Nose – Pear, Grapefruit, and Floral Notes.
Taste – Little bit of lemons but mostly green apple.
Finish – Clean finish with medium to high acid.
Overall, this was not as good as I remember or the 2012 was much better. It is still a good wine that is a nice alternative to Chardonnay drinkers but it didn’t blow me away this year like it did last.
