    Bodegas Monterebro

    Jumilla (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, Vegetables


    "White flowers the nose has floral charm with the freshness of limes and lemons. Bright and crisp on the start of the palate yet there is sweetness under the fresh fruit a pineapple, pear and tropical fruits mix. Tangerine at the back balances the richer flavours the finish crisp and flinty."

  2. $106.50

    Konzelmann Estate Winery

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Sweets, White Meat


    Fresh oak, sweet butter and a mellow, caramelized nuttiness make up the nose of this charming Chardonnay. The fruit aspect strikes a stellar harmony between sweetness and acid, while the gentle oak component engages the palate and erodes to a long, warm finish. > Learn More

  3. $359.40

    Domaine de Montbourgeau

    France (France), Jura (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    “Delicious Chardonnay from Jura, in an oxidative style: aromas of bruised apple, nuts, maple syrup and butter pear. The mouth is marked by the same flavours, carried by a fresh acidity, with notes of dried fruits and buckwheat honey. To try with an open mind if you’re not familiar with the style, but so cool. A wine with a bit of bang; a match like no other for maple poultry, chicken with curry or morels, and simply stunning with Comté cheese.” - Véronique Rivest

    "The whites tend to spend one winter in topped up foudres and a second one in barriques that are not refilled. The current 2014 L'Etoile is the basic white produced exclusively with Chardonnay and is from a cooler year, which seemed to have a lighter effect of the veil of yeasts, built around freshness and minerality rather than volume. It has settled down already and has good complexity. Long and fresh. I'm sure this is going to be long lived in bottle."

    3 x 2000 Quinta do Moinho 

    "The 2000 Tinto Quinta do Moinho is one of the oldies this issue (in the Beiras regional appellation). This is mostly fresh, but it lacks the definition and focus of the recently seen (and completely brilliant) 2001. It compensates, though, with very fine concentration, giving this a very lush and rich feel for an older Baga. It fills the mouth. The 2000 and 2001 vintages often produce these differences--they both reflect their vintage styles. Still relatively youthful, this can hang on for at least another decade, maybe much more, but let's take this in stages."

    92 points - Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, Oct 2016

    3 x 1991 Vinhas Velhas Branco 

    "Orange colour. This is from sandy soils and was fermented in new oak. Powerful and spicy with marmalade, herbs and apricot flavours. Very intense and still alive with some spicy citrus notes. Quite beautiful."

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.
