  1. New Gamay Noir VQA by Tawse Winery 2013

    $227.40

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml


    Darker berries define the Paul Pender take on Gamay for Niagara and in '13 there is a level of tension and girth not yet approached. This third Tawse Gamay is overt in attitude, connotative of Beaujolais Cru staging, an ovule of rebellion and a disposition just as though in the grips of Asmodeus. The Tawse effect is entrenched in clay and possessive of knowledge as if derived by an invitation only junket to the Gamay motherland. If the stance seems serious, the fruit is up to the task. A Gamay for now and fully capable of aging five or more years. > Learn More

  2. New Tawse Cabernet- Merlot VQA by Tawse Winery 2012

    $263.40

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Primarily Cab Franc with 27% Cab Sauv and 15% Merlot, this bounds frm the glass with kitchen spice, herbs, chocolate and mixed field berry aromas. It needs time to knit, but everything's there - great carpentry, deft balance, complexity and charm. Rich, ripe flavours of cherry and spiced black plum coat the palate, red and black currant with a solid tanin underpinning provide an aftertaste that's dry and elegant. > Learn More

  3. New Cabernet Franc Grower's Blend by Tawse Winery 2016 Cabernet Franc Grower's Blend by Tawse Winery 2016

    $347.40

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Here's a well balanced, silky and succulent cabernet franc from Tawse, on the riper side of the varietal spectrum but still lively, with graphite and gravelly flavours joining tart black berry/black cherry fruit. Tannins are very fine, supported by ripe acids. Good length. Ready to drink, or cellar into the mid-'20s."

  4. New Cherry Avenue Vineyard Gamay Noir VQA by Tawse Winery 2018

    $395.40

    Tawse Winery

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "There’s great fruit and also great tension in the gamay nose of this from Cherry Road’s tight vineyard, much like what happens when pinot noir hits the glass from the same tract of land. The winemakers have harnessed the power and the anxiety this soil and climate can stick to gamay so that it is able to take on a cru effect. Welcome to the Cherry Road site and relish in how it takes effectual hold over gamay in 2018. This is one of the area’s most structured varietal wines with the right fruit stuffing to carry it through."

  5. $419.40

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "Very pretty, evolving nose and terrifically savoury palate, this is both ripe and fresh, sappy and concentrated, fleshy but also firm. I love the fine-grained tannins, abundant but coated in loads of black berry and raspberry extract, and the excellent length and depth overall. A magnificent vintage for this perennial favorite from Tawse, a strength in the portfolio to be sure. I'd cellar for another year or so, or hold until the mid to late '20s."

  6. New Grower's Blend Meritage VQA by Tawse Winery 2011

    $395.70

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    This is the best example of Bordeaux that we have experienced in the last 10 years. Aged 18 months in French oak, this wine shows tart dark fruit, cigar box and herbal aromas. The palate is full with bold tannins, dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Definitely a wine for aging, we are curious to see how it
    changes over the next 9 or 10 years.

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best red wine, along with the best red wine to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of red wines. To name some we have, dry red wine, sweet red wine, full bodied red wine, medium bodied red wine, light red wine, tannic red wine and structured red wine. There is a litany of words used to describe red wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of red wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce red wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top red wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular red wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for red wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good red wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best, along with the best values, in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

When it comes to red wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking red wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different red wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your red wine and the taste of your red wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best red wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.
