    Redstone Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    The 2013 Gewürztraminer was crafted from hand-harvested grapes from the Frost Vineyard, located on the Twenty-Mile Bench. The moderately warm 2013 vintage led to slower ripening, exceptional varietal intensity and great acidity in aromatic varietals. This is clearly evident on the nose of this fragrant Gewürztraminer, bursting with lychee and pink grapefruit, as well as pretty floral notes. On the palate, enticing notes of marmalade and candied ginger and refreshing acidity balance the residual sweetness and make this aromatic wine extremely food-friendly. > Learn More

    Konzelmann Estate Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Unlike the majority of its contemporaries, our Riesling Traminer is a genetic crossing of Riesling and Gewurztraminer, as opposed to a blend. This allows complementary flavours of its parent grapes to achieve balance naturally on the vine. Ripe citrus fruit flavours and a bright acidity harmonize well with the wine's oily texture and mild spice. > Learn More

    Tawse Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "A rich, full-bodied Niagara Chardonnay with aromas of toasted almond, golden apple and peach. A layered mid-palate with terrific replays of orchard fruit flavours. Finishes long and smooth. This wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The 2013 vintage is the inaugural release of this wine. Jim Cuddy, lead singer and guitarist of the Canadian band Blue Rodeo, has partnered with Niagara’s Tawse Winery to create a new wine bran d, Cuddy by Tawse. Cuddy is one of the country’s most iconic musicians: over the past thirty years Blue Rodeo has sold more than four million records, released 14 albums and won eleven JUNO awards. Pair with grilled chicken while enjoying an outdoor concert."

  6. $298.50

    Southbrook Vineyards

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Ann Sperling, Southbrook's director of winemaking and viticulture, has crafted an elegant, full-bodied white from the winery's organic and biodynamic estate. This belongs to the limited-edition Poetica line, which features short poems on the front label, in this case a verse from Toronto writer and bookmaker Lindsay Zier-Vogel. So, you get a piece of literature to absorb while your palate absorbs the pleasures within. As balanced as a Supreme Court judge, the 2011 chardonnay offers up flavours of peach, grilled pineapple and buttered popcorn on a silky frame, finishing long and toasty. Priced like a good white Burgundy and worthy of the comparison. > Learn More

  7. $564.00

    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "This intense, full-bodied wine is packed with ripe yellow fruits that are balanced with a powerful, concentrated texture. The wine is very young, with the toast and fruits full of energy and needing to round out. This complex wine will age. Drink from 2019."

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.
