    Sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. The 2017 Tawse Riesling is a blend from carefully sourced hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. As such, this balanced wine is a wonderful expression of both terroir and vintage, as well as a great value! The nose is bursting with rich aromas of citrus fruits, pineapple, wet stone, and honeysuckle. Notes of meyer lemon and mandarin have a bright expression on the palate. This deliciously off-dry Riesling has a creamy mouthfeel so delicately balanced with a mouthwatering finish.

  2. $299.88

    Cusumano

    Italy (Italy), Sicily (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Scallop, Soft Cheese


    A floral and delicious Grillo, driven by its floral character of cherry blossom, daffodils and jasmine. Full-bodied and very generous, but with enough acidity to drive on the textured finish.

    92 points - Luca Maroni, July 2020

    "Aromas of honeysuckle, tropical fruit and Mediterranean herbs are front and center on this fragrant white. Crisp and savory, the tangy palate features pineapple, grapefruit and ripe yellow apple alongside a mineral vein of saline."

  4. New Rioja Blanco by Sierra de Toloño 2019

    Sierra de Tolono

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Fresh Fruit, Ham, Risotto, Roasted Vegetables, Salad, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "The pretty and faintly perfumed 2019 Blanco de Sierra de Toloño has purity and freshness, and it's subtle and delicate. It fermented after going through a cold soak and was kept with lees in stainless steel. It has moderate alcohol and very good freshness, with a transparency and symmetry I like. 9,000 bottles were filled in March 2020. I'm starting to love 2019..."

    Rene Mure

    Alsace (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Pierres Sèches means "dry stones" alluding to the stone wall terraces surrounding the vines in the terroir of Rouffach. Organic, 35 year-old vines and from well-draining, limestone and marl soils, helped by those dry stone walls. Actually quite unctuous pinot gris in the classic Alsace style in which some residual sugar is urged on by acidity with purposed equanimity. Begins in flinty smoulder, works through some terpenes, stone fruit and emerges into a world of candied lemon and pith. You can feel the barrel in that mild bitterness and in the creamy texture. A fulfilling wines with classicism coded in its DNA. Will transform into crème brûlée floating in a mineral salts bath. Drink 2021-2028."

    92 Points - Michael Godel, WineAlign, July 2020

    "Pure and bold notes of freshly cut russet-pear peel fill the nose on this wine. The palate adds flowing pear juiciness and concentration. Bold fruitiness is held in check by pithy, not quite zesty freshness. This wine has drive and energy, with a just off-dry finish."

    Megalomaniac

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Rich Fish, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "This is concentrated and has nice freshness, with a pixelated citrus fruit framing to some richer pear and white peach notes. It shows nice focus, with some stony minerality. And a bright, slightly pithy finish. No obvious oak character, but good fruit intensity. Potential for development."

    92 Points - Jaime Goode, Wine Anorak, June 2020

    "Restrained floral and lightly smoky nose and palate. The finish is long with a baked apple and woody flourish." - Decanter World Wine Awards, 2020

    Gerard Betrand

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "A beautifully layered, medium-bodied white, with intertwining mango, pureed pineapple and tangerine notes that are honey-kissed and matched to floral, baking spice and mineral details. Lingering finish."

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.
