  1. $189.00

    Cave Spring Vineyard

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

    12 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."

    Château Des Charmes

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

    12 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."

  3. $237.00

    Cave Spring Vineyard

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    This wine originates from our Cave Spring Vineyard, located on a hillside of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario known as the Beamsville Bench. Vinified partly in barriques from some of our oldest, lowest yielding vines, it retains the clarity of fruit and mineral nuances that Chardonnay from our estate is renowned for.

    Tawse Winery

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Baking spice, mineral notes and Granny Smith apple aromas waft easily from this well-paced, well-priced chardonnay. A delightful mouthful of tropical fruit, tangy lemon curd and notions of caramel blanket the palate, balanced and beautiful, medium bodied, nicely textured showcasing persistent purity of fruit and no small amount of charm along with a lengthy mouth-watering aftertaste. Pour on its own or alongside roast chicken or roast pork."

    Flat Rock Cellars

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Ham, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "The 2017 version shows a racy vein of lime, grapefruit and lemon pith on the nose with the high-toned chalky minerality of the vineyard. The zippy acidity carries a range of citrus, green apple and mineral notes that remain crisp and vibrant through the finish."

    Forrest

    Marlborough (New Zealand), New Zealand (New Zealand)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Salad, Scallop, Vegetables, White Meat


    "From vineyards close to the winery, stony soils, inspired by John’s two years in the Loire. Made in 1,000-litre oak foudres from Germany and very old barriques for part of this blend. There is some herbaceous character, some elderflower, but it is tempered and restrained, cool leafy thyme herbs. Super sweet fruit, a lovely nectarine and peach touching on mango, with sheer acidity. Excellent."

    Pearce Predhomme

    Oregon (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "This has quite lovely subtle and clean nose of fresh peach, honeysuckle and vague breadcrust - classic gris aromas that are particularly refined. It is medium weight, dry yet nicely fruity as well with fine pear on the palate. It has a mineral edge, the finish is clean, the length is very good to excellent."

    Rijckaert

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Ham, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, Veal roasted, White Meat


    "A pungent nose of wood and strong reduction buries the underlying fruit at present. Otherwise there is very good volume to the even more vibrant flavors that possess fine mid-palate density while exhibiting fine length on the stony and bone dry finish that possesses just a bit more depth. Assuming the nose cleans up, and there is no reason not to, this should be lovely."

    Heretiers du Comte Lafon

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Scallop, White Meat


    "Discreet wood and matchstick influences frame pretty aromas of apple and citrus. There is excellent volume to the intense and attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess even better depth and persistence on the dry but not austere finale. This too is well-worth checking out."

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.
