  1. $213.00

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    12 x 750 ml


    Fresh ginger, allspice and tropical fruit salad burst out of glass with a welcoming salvo. It does not stop there. Round after round of apple, peach, apricot and pear thunder forth and keep you on a joyful recoil coming back for more. The palate is dry with a crisp salute of acidity that keeps the full magazine of flavour defined and firing.

    The 2016 Cuddy By Tawse Chardonnay is a blend from carefully sourced hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. The 2016 vintage endured a hot and dry summer, translating to more opulent and robust Chardonnay grapes. This wine is an excellent example of terroir, vintage, and great value! The nose greets you with pineapple, pear and caramel apple. The palate is crisp and expressive with bright apple and citrus notes which are complemented by a buttery mouthfeel.

     

    Tawse is proud to partner with Canadian music icon and Order of Canada recipient Jim Cuddy to introduce “Cuddy by Tawse” Chardonnay. Jim collaborated with winemakers Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede to create this premium barrel-fermented blend. Aged 12 months in French oak, this wine displays aromas of Bosc pear, baking spice, white flower and hints of wet stone minerality. Crips notes of grapefruit are accompanied by apple and pear and a touch of shy oak, resulting in a beautiful mouth feel on the palate.

    Spectacular value on this double 90 point, back vintage Niagara wine.  Properly treated, high quality fruit leads this elegant, light sytle of Chardonnay.  Aromas of baked apple and honeyed melon finish with slight spice and toasty oak. 

    "Masterfully made: great value too. A well-rounded, balanced Niagara Chardonnay: not heavy or wimpy, just right. Toasted almond and golden apple aromas. Nice mouth-feel. Pair with roast turkey or chicken. Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, lobster in butter, corn dishes, pork, fried chicken, almonds, brie, camembert."

    90 points - Natalie McLean, March 2019

     

    "The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is a blend of grapes form three vineyards parcels at Cave Spring Vineyards, ranging from 32 to 38 years of age. This is a ripe yet dialed-in expression of Chardonnay, which shows the warmth of the vintage but doesn't lose its brightness or purity. Thoughtful management in the cellar called for 50/50 blend of tank and barrel fermented lots, with 20 percent new French oak and an 80/20 mix of selected and indigenous yeast strains. It calls to mind some of the more showy Cave Spring vintages from the past - 2003, 2007 and 2010 - but with more harmony and lengths. Drink now to 2024."

    3 bottles x 2018 Sauvignon Blanc
    3 bottles x 2017 Pinot Noir

    3 bottles x 2017 Cuvée Winona VQA Niagara Peninsula

     

    2019 Rosé 

    "Our house style of rose is bright and refreshing with a pale colour and great fruit. The nose has vibrant red fruits such as, sour cherry, raspberry, watermelon with complimentary savoury notes with hints of floral orange blossom. The palate supports the nose with rich texture and a delicate finish. This bright, refreshing Rose was built for warm summer days and good company!

     

    2018 Sauvignon Blanc

    "A brand new release of the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc: picked relatively early, 18 hours on skins before pressing, fermentation in stainless steel, with a portion aged in neutral barrels for four months and the remainder in stainless steel. The wine is pale straw in the glass, crisp and fresh, with hints of grass, white flowers, lemon-lime and yellow melon. It's dry, with bright acidity, and add a whisper of white grapefruit and white peach on the palate. A charming wine, delicate and nuanced, far from the heavy vegetal side of the grape — perhaps moving towards a uniquely Niagara expression of the variety?" 90 points - Tim Appelt, WineDiscovery, April 2019

     

    2017 Pinot Noir

    "From de-classification choices made in the winery, the NP pinot noir is a blend of Lowrey and Senchuk vineyard fruit that didn’t make it into the single-vineyard bottles. Falls somewhere not precisely calculated in the 12-18 months barrel age time for fruit sweet and structured, elevated into the ether tonal zone and ready to please, if you please. Take some time and realize the dream, of pinot noir made the right way from an agglomeration out of all the correct places and spaces." 90 points - Michael Godel, Winealign, March 2019 (2016 Vintage)

     

    2017 Cuvée Winona

    This blended wine over-delivers massively for the price. The nose is pronounced with dried cranberries, lavender, licorice, cocoa, cedar, and blueberries that the palate replicates and follows with raspberry, vanilla, and rich tannins. It is perfectly drinkable now but will age well over the next 5-8 years. Great with burgers, cured meat, and hard cheese.

    La Tour Gallus

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Scallop, Vegetables, White Meat


    Vines are grown in altered magmatic rock called, Gabbro.  Harvested in the best conditions, the grapes are pressed immediately after selection.  The wine is light in color with green reflections.  The nose is mineral with an early expression. Enriched on lees, this wine is ample, full and mineral.  A nice structure in mouth, wonderful density and strong identity due to the soil made of Gabbro.

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.
