    Cave Spring Vineyard

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Rich Fish, Risotto, Vegetables, White Meat


    This wine offers perfumed notes of orange blossom and ripe cantaloupe, with soft herbal scents reminiscent of sage, thyme and mint in the background. The palate is rich and medium bodied, with ripe flavours of melon and red apple on the front and middle palate. A refreshing seam of acidity emerges for
    balances, carrying very persistent orange peel flavours long onto the finish.

    "Wow! This is an intense, nervy riesling with all kinds of apple, citrus and floral (jasmin) character. It is medium weight, just off dry but so well balanced in terms of acid and sugar, with really impressive fruit intensity and drive. It is bracing and almost relentless in terms of flavour depth. There is a hint of CO2 adding to the brightness. Some grapefruity bitterness on the finish. Excellent to outstanding length."

    The wine has abundant fruit with a hint of wood spice on the nose, including pineapple, guava and citrus. On the palate it is rich with a hint of freshness. It is well balanced with a long finish.

  4. $323.40

    Tawse Winery

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "This is a tropical and floral beauty on the nose—pineapple, guava, honeysuckle, rose water—with a back drop of mineral notes. This is medium-bodied with a nice roundness on the palate but absolutely no residual sugar, leaving all the stage to cantaloupe and pineapple flavours, bright citrus acidity, energetic minerality and a ginger hint emerging in the long delectable finish. This gem will shine alongside steamed mussel or a seared red tuna salad with an Asian flair."

    Benito Ferrara

    Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, White Meat


    "Luminous straw-green. Inviting, lovely lemon-lime and white flower notes on the nose. Then very serious and almost austere in the mouth, displaying a stony personality to the orchard and tropical fruit flavors. Remarkably Fiano-like on the long, smooth, mineral finish – in fact, it “out-Fianos” Ferrara’s Fiano Sequenzha this year! A lovely wine that is still youthful and will likely develop well."

    93+ points - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media, Nov 2019 (2018 vintage)

    Benito Ferrara is one of Italy’s best white wine producers. Ferrara’s most famous wine, the Greco di Tufo Vigna Cicogna, is an Italian icon.

    Benito Ferrara’s Greco di Tufo Vigna Cicogna is perhaps the most elegant Greco di Tufo wine made in Italy today. Though it has the tannic power typical of Greco wines, it has a light on its feet quality, a dainty minerality and a lemony freshness that are not commonly found in other Greco di Tufo wines." - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media

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.
