Wine Review: Seriously Cool

2016 Seriously Cool Chardonnay – LCOB 457481 – $14.95 – **** – Bright and crisp with a nice mouthfeel. Unoaked Chardonnay of this calibre is anything but boring. The aromas speak of peaches and apples with some citrus tossed in there. The flavours match the nose and are met with bright crisp acidity making this a food friendly solution for so many things. A great match to a fish fry or grilled chicken.

2013 Seriously Cool Red – LCBO 453639 – $15.95 – **** – If the Seriously Cool Chardonnay is your solution to fish and chicken bring the Red for your red meat situations. Steak, Burgers, Lamb Chops – bring it on. There is nice raspberry, plum and blackberry in this bottle met with a nice smoky note and a hint of spice. This is a medium bodied red that pushes right up on being something bigger… but that’s not the purpose of this bottle. Not every wine is meant to spend time locked up in a cellar. No patience required enjoy this frequently and immediately.

2016 Seriously Cool Rosé – LCBO 522664 – $14.95 – **** – I plan on holding onto a bottle of this for the fall to enjoy around turkey season. There is a slight sweetness that makes watermelon and strawberry flavours pop on the palate, but nice acidity keeps the sweetness from feeling cloying. This is a well balanced Rosé with nice concentration to the flavours within. Food pairings are endless with this wine, I really can’t think of a meal that wouldn’t work with this.
