    Cave Spring Cellars

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

    6 x 750 ml


    "This is a very attractive gewürztraminer, listed as off-dry but really quite dry to my palate. It displays very good weight and texture, with good structure and balance. Winemaker Angelo Pavan is forthright about his approach to this variety: “The acidity drops quickly in gewürztraminer, and a lot of people pick early to get the acidity. But I prefer to pick it later, to make sure the fruit is ripe. Gewürztraminer isn’t about acidity; you want this oily texture. If you want acidity, drink riesling.” This example clearly embodies his approach. It shows the classic flavour profile, some viscosity in the texture, and the characteristic slight bitterness toward the back palate. And the acidity? This is not a fat, low-acid gewürztraminer, any more than it’s the blowsy style. The acidity is here in ample degree, well balanced with the fruit, and adding freshness to the other qualities of this well-made wine." 4 1/2 out of 5 stars - Rod Phillips, Winepointer, Nov 2014 (2012 vintage) 90 Points - Globe and Mail - Beppi Crosariol > Learn More

    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Riesling is a versatile grape variety. It can be made in many different styles from dry to semi-dry, sweet and even sparkling. We believe that Riesling grown in cool climate wine regions, like Niagara, produce food-friendly and age-worthy wines. Our "˜Old Vines' Riesling is an excellent example of this. It has classic old world aromas of flint with nuances of lemon and lime adding freshness. We made this wine in an unoaked, dry style with a thread of tangy acidity. > Learn More

    "Aromas of stone fruit and citrus are followed by a lively blend of pear and tropical fruit. The palate shows a crisp acidity with a fruit forward finish, making this a versatile wine that pairs particularly well with light fish dishes, grilled chicken, prosciutto and melon, or all on its own."

    Southbrook Vineyards

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

    6 x 750 ml

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


    The immediate impression is the increased richness as compared to 2012, as if the Richness fruit were here in the Triomphe. What this will mean in terms of the Whimsy's potential should be cause for anticipation. This is the most triumphant essential Southbrook Chardonnay to date and much thanks must be awarded the Saunders Vineyard for helping to bolster the mix. The gentle Beamsville Bench of old-vine Chardonnay impart is ephemeral, in mineral and lushness. The layered result atop Niagara flatland fruit in Triomphe '13 is texture. This is the key and the king component. In that sense what you have here is a wine of social heredity. It is drinking well now and will do so for five plus years. > Learn More

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    The limestone minerality elegantly underpins and disciplines this graceful Chardonnay. The complex apple, pear and summer melon characteristics are skillfully restrained, yet fully expressed. "Less is more" comes to mind as this wine gently opens in the glass. There is an unmistakable inner strength and dynamic energy to this wine that is sublimely veiled by its quiet authority causing every sip to be as bewitching as the last. > Learn More

    Tawse Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml

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


    Tawse has been producing single-vineyard Gewürztraminer from the Quarry vineyard since 2009. Planted on mixed limestone and clay soils, this estate vineyard is farmed organically and biodynamically and produces exceptionally fragrant Gewürztraminer. The moderately warm 2013 vintage led to slower ripening and exceptional varietal intensity in aromatic varietals. This is clearly evident on the nose of this fragrant Gewürztraminer, bursting with lychee and guava, as well as pretty notes of rose petals. On the palate, lively notes of marmalade, mandarin and fresh ginger make this aromatic wine extremely food-friendly. With its floral notes and hint of sweetness, Gewürztraminer is the perfect choice with spicy dishes, especially Asian cuisine. It would pair beautifully with teriyaki chicken, Korean BBQ ribs, shrimp tempura and avocado rolls or Peking duck! > Learn More

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


    From 50 year-old vines. Bright pale yellow. The nose is marked by finesse and discreetly lemony mielées, civet and scree, acacia, quince and candied argrumes. Palate is fresh and light following a mineral line to the precise and clean finish. > Learn More

    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Chablis (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Bouchard’s old-vine cuvee casts textbook Chablis aromas of high toned chalky minerals, freshly grated lemon zest and sweet butter. Lithe and sprightly on the palate, the Chablis’ brilliant acidity and smoky, flinty mineral spine lift its core of buttery citrus fruit. The wine’s old-vine quality comes to the fore on its long, flinty, soil-inflected finish. Showing impressive grip, persistent minerality, resinous old-vine fruit and a most comfortable price point, this a superb choice for pairing with shell fish, light fish dishes, vegetable souffles, or to serve as an aperitif. > Learn More

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.
