"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."

This smooth red is bursting with notes of ripe red berry fruit, black cherries, and plum. The palate is rich with flavours of cherry, pomegranate, hints of spice and smoky vanilla undertones.
2019 Pinot Noir Rose
Green apple and citrus are apparent on the nose with a touch of floral aromas. Intense citrus flavours are complemented by strawberry and raspberry notes on the palate. Subtle tannins are present along with a refreshing acidity to balance the finish of the wine.

12 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 bottles x 2018 Sauvignon Blanc
3 bottles x 2017 Pinot Noir
3 bottles x 2017 Cuvée Winona VQA Niagara Peninsula
"Our house style of rose is bright and refreshing with a pale colour and great fruit. The nose has vibrant red fruits such as, sour cherry, raspberry, watermelon with complimentary savoury notes with hints of floral orange blossom. The palate supports the nose with rich texture and a delicate finish. This bright, refreshing Rose was built for warm summer days and good company!
"A brand new release of the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc: picked relatively early, 18 hours on skins before pressing, fermentation in stainless steel, with a portion aged in neutral barrels for four months and the remainder in stainless steel. The wine is pale straw in the glass, crisp and fresh, with hints of grass, white flowers, lemon-lime and yellow melon. It's dry, with bright acidity, and add a whisper of white grapefruit and white peach on the palate. A charming wine, delicate and nuanced, far from the heavy vegetal side of the grape — perhaps moving towards a uniquely Niagara expression of the variety?" 90 points - Tim Appelt, WineDiscovery, April 2019
"From de-classification choices made in the winery, the NP pinot noir is a blend of Lowrey and Senchuk vineyard fruit that didn’t make it into the single-vineyard bottles. Falls somewhere not precisely calculated in the 12-18 months barrel age time for fruit sweet and structured, elevated into the ether tonal zone and ready to please, if you please. Take some time and realize the dream, of pinot noir made the right way from an agglomeration out of all the correct places and spaces." 90 points - Michael Godel, Winealign, March 2019 (2016 Vintage)
This blended wine over-delivers massively for the price. The nose is pronounced with dried cranberries, lavender, licorice, cocoa, cedar, and blueberries that the palate replicates and follows with raspberry, vanilla, and rich tannins. It is perfectly drinkable now but will age well over the next 5-8 years. Great with burgers, cured meat, and hard cheese.> Learn More
Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)
12 x 750 ml
Breads, Cured Meat, Duck breast, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted
Produced at Maetierra, a winery owned by Vintae, this is a project based on four vineyards: Two are old-vine tempranillo dating to the 1920s and ’50s; one is garnacha planted in the 1920s; the fourth is graciano planted in the 1980s. They come together in a pretty red, a tight, silken mouthful of wine. This has the ripeness of cherries in syrup, but it’s savory and austere. There’s a lot of American oak in the aroma, needing air to relent and reveal the lush, warm, rich sweetness of fruit, even as the tannins continue to keep it dry. A juicy Rioja for steak.> Learn More

Cherry Block Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019
The extreme cold night and long summer days of New Zealand's Central Otago region are the conditions that serve to produce the vivid, rich and spicy Cherry Block Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry, raspberry are complemented by spice and mushrooms.
"Youthfully expressed and delightfully lifted, the wine shows sweet raspberry, cherry, floral, subtle spice and almond characters. The palate delivers lovely weight and roundness together with fine texture and bright acidity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2023."
90 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2020
Pirinoa Road Chardonnay 2018
"Wonderfully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows golden peach, rockmelon, baked fig, vanilla and cedar characters. It is equally impressive on the palate with excellent weight and persistency. The wine offers fabulous complexity backed by creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2022."
94 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019
Hawk's Bay Chardonnay 2018
A fragrant bouquet bursting with stone fruit and melon with hints of lemon peel. Rounded texture with rich vanilla and nutty toast are balanced by the refreshing acidity and long finish. A perfect match with rich seafood, white meats and salads.

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.
