    Cave Spring Cellars

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

    6 x 750 ml


    On the nose, scents of white flowers, wet stone, and cantaloupe emerge over top hints of black licorice and fresh herbs. The palate is medium dry with concentrated pink grapefruit and mandarin orange on the attack, giving way to yellow cherry fruit on the mid-palate. The finish is very persistent, with notes of crushed stone, spice and citrus zest. The long, cool ripening of this vintage has delivered remarkable flavour complexity and a seamless integration of body and acidity on the palate.

    6 x 750 ml


    Showing great concentration, the nose exhibits intense aromas of ripe pear, white peach and lime-citrus, complemented by delicate floral notes. Dry in style, the palate shows complex citrus and green melon fruit up front, with outstanding middle palate weight and an accent of white pepper. The wine’s focused fruit carries through to a very bright and persistent finish. Dry but not austere, this vintage stands out for its balance of vivacious fruit, full extraction and rich texture.

    The nose is replete with aromas of ripe red apple, musk melon and clementine, tinged with spice and butter. The palate shows rich, exotic citrus fruit up front and in the middle, underpinned by the wine's hefty body. The finish is clean and crisp with blood orange flavours and overtones of citrus rind. This Chardonnay stands out for its balance power and ripe with vivacious fruit and acidity.

    "This is a lovely sauvignon blanc that goes well with grilled white fish with a squeeze of lemon, freshly shucked oysters or fish and chips (but avoid vinegar and stick to lemon). Made in a classic and popular style, this sauvignon is dry and medium bodied, with a very refreshing and zesty texture that lifts and enhances the well-defined and quite concentrated flavours."

    "And now for something completely different—a clone of Chardonnay known for its heady, perfume-like aromas. This opens with room-filling aromas of orange blossom, fresh-grape nuances and a distinctive musk-like perfume. A surge of viscous, slightly off-dry ambrosia coats the palate with white nectarine and tropical fruit interwoven with Meyer lemon and notions of peach skin. It’s mid-full weight with generous mouth feel and a lingering balanced aftertaste with just enough acidity to keep it crisp and refreshing. Another triumph for Cave Spring Cellars and winemaker extraordinaire, Angelo Pavan. Sip on its own or pair with grilled or pan-seared seafood."

    "This is a very attractive gewürztraminer, listed as off-dry but really quite dry to my palate. It displays very good weight and texture, with good structure and balance. Winemaker Angelo Pavan is forthright about his approach to this variety: “The acidity drops quickly in gewürztraminer, and a lot of people pick early to get the acidity. But I prefer to pick it later, to make sure the fruit is ripe. Gewürztraminer isn’t about acidity; you want this oily texture. If you want acidity, drink riesling.” This example clearly embodies his approach. It shows the classic flavour profile, some viscosity in the texture, and the characteristic slight bitterness toward the back palate. And the acidity? This is not a fat, low-acid gewürztraminer, any more than it’s the blowsy style. The acidity is here in ample degree, well balanced with the fruit, and adding freshness to the other qualities of this well-made wine." 4 1/2 out of 5 stars - Rod Phillips, Winepointer, Nov 2014 (2012 vintage) 90 Points - Globe and Mail - Beppi Crosariol > Learn More

    6 x 750 ml


    Tropical aromas of pineapple and papaya and a pronounced toastiness shine through on the nose, with hints of pear, spice and crushed stones in behind. Crisp and citrusy up front, the palate is rich in extract, underpinned by our Estate's signature stoniness in the middle. The combination of body and acidity carries notes of spice, toast and minerals long on the finish. Overall, the precision, focus and intensity of fruit in this vintage make for a remarkably Chablis-like Chardonnay.

    "From early pioneers of the modern era of vitis vinifera plantings and winemaking in Niagara, Cave Spring’s portfolio of fine wine showcase the Pennachetti family’s determination, dedication and excellence. Smoky/toasty aromas merge with baked apple and pit fruit on the nose before coating the palate with a stylish gusher of balanced and beautiful flavour—apple pie spice, racy lemon pie filling and wisps of toasty oak predominant. The finish is crisp, lengthy and lip-smacking good."

    The nose offers seamless aromas of tangerine, lemon and wet slate, with undertones of cut grass and anise. Full and quite dry in feel, the palate is silky and highly extracted, with intense flavours of grapefruit and yellow plum. Great tension between rich, crystalline textures and crisp, nervous acidity provides structure and balance throughout. The wine's steely edge carries notes of fresh basil and crushed-stone into a long finish.

    On the nose, classic Bartlett pear and lemon meringue aromas emerge overtop notes of candied orange peel,golden raisins and allspice. The palate is sweet and full in body yet not cloying, echoing in flavour the aromas of the nose along with notes of black tea, honeycomb and brown sugar. Crisply structured throughout, the wine's brilliant acidity provides a clean, elegant finish reminiscent of orange marmelade and crème brûlée. A vibrantly aromatic wine, with notes of petrol, marmalade, citrus and flowers. It's rich and honeyed, with a lightly smoky, lingering finish.

    "That flesh, that Kabinett flesh, fills the CSV in every crevice. In 2013 the residual sugar number lies between 15 and 16 g/L, and though the crop was bigger, it was still picked later than in 2012. The result is formidable corporeal concentration, consistency of house style and perhaps the only '13 Niagara Riesling to imitate, perpetuate and extrapolate on the vintage that came before. This Cave Spring concentrates fruit and Escarpment into a powerful Riesling, streaming like charged particles through changing expressions. A lingering ascension hovers as it rises, until it slowly fades into the welkin, like a balloon that languidly gets lost into the blinding blue of a midday sky. Drink 2017-2025."

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.
