    Wildass Wines

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

    6 x 750 ml


    The 2011 Wildass White opens with an undeniable aroma of peaches, ripe as if direct from a Niagara orchard. This blend is mainly Sauvignon Blanc augmented by Sémillon, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling. Oak aged for just under two years, there is a subtle oak element at play, but the ripe Sauvignon Blanc fruit dominates here. > Learn More

    Redstone Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    The 2011 vintage created classic Chardonnays with refreshing acidity and elegant minerality. Our Reserve Chardonnay, made with the highest quality fruit from our very own Limestone Vineyard, is no exception. The medium-bodied Chardonnay was barrelfermented using indigenous yeasts and aged 12 months in French oak. The nose is pretty, with enticing notes of white flower, tropical fruit, a hint of flirtiness On the palate, apple and ripe pear dominate, rounded out by lush texture alluding to stonefruit and pineapple, a hint of oak spice and a pleasing finish.

    Marie-Pierre Manciat

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "The 2012 Pouilly Fuissé les Petites Bruyeres comes from 30-year-old vines, fermented in both barrel and stainless steel where the wine matures for 11 months. It has a pretty bouquet with scents of lemon peel, freshly cut pear, nettle and limestone. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, fine tension with a tightly wound, minerally finish that suggests two or three years in bottle will be required. This is an austere, but classy, Pouilly-Fuisse and I suspect it will age extremely well. This comes highly recommended."

  6. $275.70

    Tawse Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Robyn's Block is the oldest (29 years) of the estate's Chardonnay plantings in the Twenty Mile sub-appellation. With each passing vintage, this certified organic-biodynamic wine just keeps getting better. The nose is focused and finessed with fresh citrus, touches of green apple and quince, wet stone and a floral note that all rises above the subtle oak spices. The crisp and zesty lime-citrus fruit and minerals glide on a razor sharp beam of mouth-watering acidity and light up the palate. This is pure elegance in the mouth, a complex array generous (but never weighty) fruit flavours that are balanced out by a wisp of spice that build in intensity through a long, long finish. This is irresistible now but will continue to give pleasure for five or more years. A brilliant Chardonnay made without a heavy hand in the cellar. > Learn More

  7. $310.80

    Southbrook Vineyards

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml


    This exquisite bottling represents the 4 barrels that winemaker Ann Sperling selected for their classic, ageable character. The ying of our warm Four Mile Creek vineyard is balanced by the yang of our cool climate region. Stunning now, our Poetica Chardonnay will reward your patience with years of development to come.

    "From selected barrels, this is a fabulous chardonnay that’s what I think of as a complete wine. It’s elegant in style, with great complexity, breadth and depth to the flavour profile, and subtle layering. The fruit is fairly restrained and is finely balanced with the well-calibrated acid. There’s some longevity here: drink to the early 2020s."

At WineOnline.ca we absolutely love white wine. White grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Viognier, Verdejo, Riesling, Garganega etc, (there are 1000’s more), produce roughly the same quantity of grapes as their red counterparts, but for reasons unknown, many people believe a good white wine should cost less than a quality bottle of red wine. A quality white wine typically takes as much time and energy to produce as a quality red wine. Neither must be expensive, but to expect more quality from a popular white wine for less money than a red, does not make sense.

Of course, white wines can be all over the map. There is sweet white wine, the most famous of which is, of course, Sauternes which is produced in Bordeaux. Sauternes is produced from the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, though you will never see Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon written on the label. Chateau Yquem would be the most recognizable name/producer in Sauternes, and of course, the most expensive of the Sauternes producers. The Hungarian version of iconic sweet wine, is Tokaj, which is perhaps not quite as famous, but equally delicious. There are dry white wines which are produced all over the world, but many would suggest the best dry white wine is produced in Burgundy, with the most popular white wine produced in Burgundian churning out Montrachet or derivatives of Montrachet, such as Batard Monthrachet, or Bievenue Batard Montrachet. All of the white wine in Burgundy is produced from the Chardonnay grape, though once again, you will rarely, if ever, see Chardonnay written on the label. If you are looking for a different style of Chardonnay, perhaps something oakier, you may want to consider finding great white wine types in different areas of California. Napa Chardonnay, or Chardonnay from Santa Barbara are a couple of the more famous areas for production. If you are looking for the best white wine, you might consider looking in Spain, Portugal, Italy or even South America. There are countless good white wine produced in the Mediterranean countries where they often consume more white wine than red. I believe there are a number of reasons for this. 1st of all, it is typically very warm and people want to drink something cool and refreshing, 2nd, there is a lot of fishing and it is hard to argue that white wine does not go better with fish than red wine.

Some white wine lovers might suggest the best Sauvignon Blanc comes from New Zealand, my personal favourite regions for Sauvignon Blanc production are Sancerre and even those from Southern Austria and Slovenia. I must impress on you that I am of the opinion that best is always in the eye of taste buds of the wine drinker. There is no right or wrong, and only opinion. Whether you like bold white wines, or elegant light white wines, sweet white wine, or dry, at WineOnline.ca we scour the world to ensure you are drinking the best, and the best value white wines there are anywhere.
