    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, Vegetables


    "White flowers the nose has floral charm with the freshness of limes and lemons. Bright and crisp on the start of the palate yet there is sweetness under the fresh fruit a pineapple, pear and tropical fruits mix. Tangerine at the back balances the richer flavours the finish crisp and flinty."

    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

    Peninsula Ridge

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Beautiful aromas of peaches, passion fruit and coconut on the nose with a long palate full of tropical fruits perfectly balanced with acidity. The finish is super long and unmistakably Wismer. > Learn More

    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Château des Charmes Chardonnay, St. David's Bench Vineyard is barrel fermented and aged "sur lie" for up to 12 months in French Allier oak barrels. The resulting wine is full-bodied, combining flavours of tropical fruit and melon in a concentrated, buttery style. There are also nuances of smokiness and soft, warm spice to make things interesting. This is an age worthy Chardonnay that will continue to develop for a few years in the bottle. > Learn More

  6. $359.40

    Domaine de Montbourgeau

    France (France), Jura (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    “Delicious Chardonnay from Jura, in an oxidative style: aromas of bruised apple, nuts, maple syrup and butter pear. The mouth is marked by the same flavours, carried by a fresh acidity, with notes of dried fruits and buckwheat honey. To try with an open mind if you’re not familiar with the style, but so cool. A wine with a bit of bang; a match like no other for maple poultry, chicken with curry or morels, and simply stunning with Comté cheese.” - Véronique Rivest

    "The whites tend to spend one winter in topped up foudres and a second one in barriques that are not refilled. The current 2014 L'Etoile is the basic white produced exclusively with Chardonnay and is from a cooler year, which seemed to have a lighter effect of the veil of yeasts, built around freshness and minerality rather than volume. It has settled down already and has good complexity. Long and fresh. I'm sure this is going to be long lived in bottle."

    Metz Road

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA)

    3 x 750 ml

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


    The initial scents of butter and toast give way to red apples, pineapple, white peaches, pears, nutmeg, vanilla and slate. On the palate the flavors are full, powerful and commanding with a distinctive mineral component. The finish is lively, long and firm with traces of oak spice. > Learn More

    Rijckaert

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "Slightly more evident wood influence still allows the ripe and expressive aromas of citrus, peach and pear to be appreciated before marrying into impressively concentrated and textured flavors that are almost painfully intense while offering notably better complexity and persistence. This is excellent and worth considering."

    Mer Soleil

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Golden-hued in color, the wine opens with opulent aromas of peach, apple, Meyer lemon and baking spices. The palate is an inviting medley of peach and D'Anjou pear; layered with tropical notes of pineapple and banana. The vibrant acidity is well balanced by warm butterscotch and subtle coconut notes that seamlessly meld together to create a luscious, mouth-filling richness. It is medium to full-bodied with a refreshing burst of minerality and well-integrated oak characteristics that offer a round, lengthy finish. > 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.
