    "Honeysuckle and oaky aromas provide segue to a medium-full bodied, fully textured mouthful of honey-drizzled lemon and lime intertwined with ripe apricot, ginger snap and notes of buttered toast; this was aged eight months in French oak barrels. This dishes up purity of fruit, deft balance, depth, complexity elegance and charm. Pour with pan-seared pork chops and apple sauce or chicken pot pie."

    Isaac Fernandez Selección

    Campo de Borja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "I’m much more familiar with Garnacha Blanca from Catalonia than Aragon, but this is a very convincing rendition of the variety. Medium-bodied, with open fruit flavors recalling white melon, tangerine and autumn pear, this is quite juicy and flavorful when first sipped, but then shows a more taut, citrus character in the finish. This sensory transition from a broad fore-palate to a linear aftertaste will help this work well with a very wide variety of foods, including anything from a roasted chicken to shellfish dishes such as shrimp or mussels. Delicious, and a very attractive bargain."

    Cave Spring Cellars

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    "This tart and delicate wine packs a lot of flavor in its dry frame. Grapefruit and nectarine are the dominant fruit flavors. It’s sappy and long, with a faint hint of petrol."

  4. New Old Vines' Riesling by Château Des Charmes 2015

    $112.50

    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Always a special wine from St. David’s. It’s a lime bomb on the nose with notes of lemon, crisp green apple and profound minerality. It’s zippy and fresh on the palate, a smidge of honey, with lime, grapefruit, ginger, stony minerality and balancing acidity. Should age well for another five years but already hitting its stride."

    Tessari

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "This has a gorgeous, exotic and refined nose of linden/jasmine, lemon blossom, tangerine and peach. It is medium-full bodied, very tidy, lively yet rich with lovely concentration and focus. Nicely firm and mineral with bitter lemon on the finish. The length is excellent."

    Colinas do Douro

    12 x 750 ml

    Risotto, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Oak-aged Rabigato is rare, so it is interesting (and delicious) to taste this successful wine. It has a judicious use of wood (just a hint). The wood has just softened the enthusiastic acidity while crisp fruit broadens this naturally fruity wine. Drink from 2019."

    Bodegas Casal de Armán

    Ribeiro (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Limpid gold. Aromas of Meyer lemon, pear and jasmine, with subtle honey and herb notes in the background. Lively and focused on the palate, offering juicy, orchard fruit flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Lingers with very good, mineral-tinged tenacity, leaving a hint of fennel behind."

    Weingut Fred Loimer

    Austria (Austria), Kamptal (Austria)

    12 x 750 ml

    Duck breast, Ham, Rich Fish, White Meat


    Intense spicy aromas of ground white pepper and cardamom along with a whiff of yellow apple. Vibrant mouthfeel even with its lean body structure. On the palate are notes of greengage and dried pineapple - lovely fruitiness with graceful acidity. Good balance and tension. A discreet and elegant tarty touch on the finish.

  9. New Chassagne-Montrachet Villages by Domaine Bachelet Monnot 2017

    $654.00

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "(made from six parcels located "next to" the premier and grand crus of Chassagne-Montrachet, according to Alexandre Bachelet, who added that about half of these vines are less than 30 years old): Distinctly floral, pure scents of pear, white peach and menthol; showing well today thanks to the earlier malolactic fermentation, which finished in February. Juicy and light on its feet, with its flavors of white peach, menthol and dusty stone displaying modest flesh but lovely precision. Finishes with very good lift. The Bachelets will rack this wine just before the 2018 harvest, but it will remain in stainless steel until bottling next March or April."
    88-91 points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, September 2018

     

    "Crisp white fruit without the sulphidic complexity of their Santenay, but loads of leesy, mealy character on the palate. Very savoury and very dry to finish – cries out for food."

  10. New Puligny-Montrachet Villages by Domaine Bachelet Monnot 2017

    $744.00

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Light, bright yellow. Aromas of white peach, noble herbs and toasty oak are lifted by a stony quality (none of these '17s show any exotic character). Fine-grained, concentrated wine with sweet flavors of stone fruits and white flowers nicely framed by harmonious acidity. This wine really benefited from the dry growing season, noted Alexandre Bachelet, who added that its pH is 3.1, about the same as that of the village Chassagne. Offers good density and grip for village wine."
    88-91 points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, September 2018

     

    "Quite a lot of floral fragrance and lovely white fruit too. Strong saline stony character on the finish – very concentrated and lengthy, with archetypical nervy acidity."

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.
