  1. $252.00

    Big Head

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Salad, Scallop


    A fresher and livelier version to the 2017, this is a great summer sipper (or chugger). The nose shows hints of nectarine and yellow plum. The palate is dry, with a persistent acidity that would be great for hors d’oeuvres. Salty chips or a fresh salad would be great too. > Learn More

  2. $252.00

    Big Head

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Scallop, Soft Cheese


    A ripe wine from a ripe vintage. Ripe apple, candied lemon, and honey on the nose with a hint of “mineral” tones from the sun-exposure. Already starting to show slight “petrol” notes, which are a happy consequence of a generous vintage (see TDN in wine). The palate is dry and fresh, brimming with bright acidity and freshness, but that honey still shines through in the flavour profile along with lemon and white peach. A varietally sound example of Niagara Riesling. This delicate wine would pair well with any white fish done “en papillote”, folded in parchment with white wine, herbs, vegetables, and most importantly, butter. > Learn More

  3. $210.00

    Big Head

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Scallop, White Meat


    "Made in concrete, unfiltered, no skin contact. So textured and beautiful with sweet pear fruit and some table grape notes. Has a smooth, mineral texture and a nice mouthfeel. Shows incredible texture, with tangerine and spice on the finish."

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Suckling Pig, White Meat


    Savagnin is a cool grape, but can be quiet if not treated properly. It Needs some oxidation, or flor yeast, or some kind of funk to give it aromatics. This example is expressive and fresh. The nose is lightly floral, with plenty of citrus, pear and banana tones and a hint of ginger lift. The palate is dry, with a fresh acidity and long finish. > Learn More

  5. $240.00

    Big Head

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Salad, White Meat


    This is the first Sauvignon Blanc for the RAW series. The nose is a cross of the fruit profile of white Bordeaux, minus the oak, with the supporting aromas of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.  You will experience pineapple, guava and ripe peach with a lemongrass tone. The palate is dry, ripe, and fruit forward. The wine is trpoical on the palate where guava shines through pointing towards its varietal character.  Compliment this wine with raw fish ceviche or poke.

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.
