    "Now that fashion has shifted from once trendy white blends to #roséallday, the brands like Family Tree that remain are ones that have stood the test of time. They’ve found an audience because they offer considerable charm and appeal — and, in this instance, solid value. This is a rich and rewarding blend of chardonnay, viognier, gewürztraminer and chardonnay musqué, with the majority fermented in stainless tanks to preserve freshness and fragrance, and a portion fermented and aged in oak barrels for increased complexity and texture. As a result, it’s nicely balanced, layered with flavour and refreshment, which makes it truly enjoyable with or without a meal. Drink now to 2022."

  2. $189.00

    Cave Spring Vineyard

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Salad, Veal roasted, Vegetables, White Meat


    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.

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    12 x 750 ml


    Fresh ginger, allspice and tropical fruit salad burst out of glass with a welcoming salvo. It does not stop there. Round after round of apple, peach, apricot and pear thunder forth and keep you on a joyful recoil coming back for more. The palate is dry with a crisp salute of acidity that keeps the full magazine of flavour defined and firing.

    Cave Spring Vineyard

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Borscht Cabbage Soup, Olivier Salad, Pasta, Vegetables, White Meat


    "As expected, Cave Spring 's chardonnay musqué fits the varietal character perfectly. This incarnation seems more lush and voluptuous than the norm, almost honeyed in its texture. Peppery and floral with a mid-weight to full-bodied profile. A hedonistic treat."

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.
