    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml


    "A dynamic little Riesling for the price. Bold lime-infused citrus with a splash of peach fruit and mineral undertones on the nose. It’s refreshing and citrus-laden on the palate with a nice clean finish."

    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml


    “Sets a (St. David's) benchmark for how to reign in and then release the charmes of Sauvignon Blanc from the Niagara Peninsula. Done in a decidedly fresh and lively style …smells of vitality, of fresh herbs and citrus just cut, of a salt spring, of things zoetic. 2013 is the new CdC yardstick. The price only cements the offer"

    6 x 750 ml


    "Buttered toast, ginger and cinnamon, pear and pineapple aromas mingle on the nose. Dry, medium-full bodied, there’s a well-defined yet restrained backbone of acidity that showcases the creamy, round texture and ripe, lush fruit. Attractive notes of spice, toast and a touch of white pepper add warmth to the flavourful, satiny finish."

    Château Des Charmes

    6 x 375 ml


    "I am very proud of this wine. Every year, each vintage, it earns medals and accolades. It often takes a back seat to Icewine but pound-for-pound this wine is fantastic value. Our Late Harvest Riesling is a rich and flavourful dessert wine. In the glass the aromas of citrus and tropical fruit leap out and fill your nose. When you take a sip it is full and sweet, but not too sweet, with laser sharp balancing acidity. This estate bottled wine is excellent to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for many years."

    “Aligoté is widely grown in Burgundy and it’s the classic white for making Kir. But it’s also a very good food wine, and this one, from a very  reliable Niagara producer, goes very well with grilled white fish and seafood.”

    6 x 750 ml


    Riesling is a versatile grape variety. It can be made in many different styles from dry to semi-dry, sweet and even sparkling. We believe that Riesling grown in cool climate wine regions, like Niagara, produce food-friendly and age-worthy wines. Our "˜Old Vines' Riesling is an excellent example of this. It has classic old world aromas of flint with nuances of lemon and lime adding freshness. We made this wine in an unoaked, dry style with a thread of tangy acidity. > Learn More

    Château des Charmes Chardonnay, St. David's Bench Vineyard is barrel fermented and aged "sur lie" for up to 12 months in French Allier oak barrels. The resulting wine is full-bodied, combining flavours of tropical fruit and melon in a concentrated, buttery style. There are also nuances of smokiness and soft, warm spice to make things interesting. This is an age worthy Chardonnay that will continue to develop for a few years in the bottle. > Learn More

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.
