    Château Haut-Blanville

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    From the clay-sandy soils of Pézenas, this humble, low-intervention Vermentino (locally known as Rolle) is ripe with the southern France sun, and tight with fermentation and ageing in stainless. Golden apple, light pear, apple blossom is tightened with pear skin and finishes with a pithy tangerine and river stones. Simple and honest, and proper with your equally simple shellfish dishes.

    Château Haut Grelot

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Pale straw-yellow in color, elegant and crisp with intense exotic fruit aromas. Grapefruit, gooseberry and wild herbs intermingle on the nose with ample citrus fruit on the palate. This wine has a generous weight, round and in perfect balance. This wine is perfect to drink by itself or pair it with seafood, chicken, fresh salads and/or cheeses.

    "This is 90% sauvignon blanc. It has a lifted nose of celery, lemon-lime, wax and dried flowers. It is medium-full bodied, quite smooth and warm with lively acidity. There is some fruit richness here. Excellent length. It shows far more depth and vivacity than I expect from Bordeaux blanc at this price point."

  3. New Sauvignon Blanc by Les Jamelles 2018

    Les Jamelles

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Fresh Fruit, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Salad, Scallop, Vegetables


    "Fresh and fruit forward Sauvignon Blanc which sees just a few months on “fine lees”during its time in tank – the nose is floral and quite pretty with notes of grapefruit that follow onto the palate with both pith and zest playing a part, there’s even a subtle minerality that peaks through on the long finish."

    Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese


    From the beautiful Les Chaboissieres area of the Loire Valley. Bright, fresh with fragrant white floral aromas, peach and citrus notes. Fatter palate weight, chalky, from the sur lie ageing & soils, yet balanced acidity. Persistent minerality on the finish.

    Jean Luc Colombo

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    12 x 750ml

    Fresh Fruit, White Meat


    La Violette is a pure Viognier which shows authenticity, freshness, and ripeness. Brilliant, light straw color. On the nose, a wild flower bouquet, possessing delicate aromatics of peaches, dried fruit and white flowers. An elegant, dry wine with rich flavors of acacia flowers, yellow peaches and exotic fruits. Lovely as an aperitif or with seafood appetizers. Great with salads, chicken dishes and crab cakes.​ > Learn More

    La Tour Gallus

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Scallop, Vegetables, White Meat


    Vines are grown in altered magmatic rock called, Gabbro.  Harvested in the best conditions, the grapes are pressed immediately after selection.  The wine is light in color with green reflections.  The nose is mineral with an early expression. Enriched on lees, this wine is ample, full and mineral.  A nice structure in mouth, wonderful density and strong identity due to the soil made of Gabbro.

    Domaine de Mauperthuis

    France (France), Saint-Bris (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    One of the coolest Sauvignon Blanc wines we have ever tasted. This white wine, made next door to Auxerre, from the Sauvignon grape is often the colour of pale straw or light gold. Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with sometimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years.

    Rijckaert

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    A specific blend of pure Chardonnay grapes from the South of Burgundy (Mâconnais), where 30+ year old vines give life to grapes that express both roundness and elegance. It’s an exquisite, mineral-chiseled white Burgundy that is dripping with tantalizingly ripe orchard fruit and cellar appeal. The mouth is round and expressive. A fine pairing with cheese or fish in cream sauce.  This 2018 is a top expression of just how serious, textured, and mineral-inflected Chardonnay can be from this region of Burgundy.

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Dry and fruity, with apricot and white flowers (lilies) aromas.  This wine has light and fragrant nose, embodying discretion. The entry strikes the palate nicely to reveal this fine fruit thanks notably to a light acidity which balance the wine’s structure. Right throughout the tasting, a fine lingering sensation with no aggressiveness whatsoever. This wine ends on a very pleasant and fluid note.

    Rene Mure

    Alsace (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Pierres Sèches means "dry stones" alluding to the stone wall terraces surrounding the vines in the terroir of Rouffach. Organic, 35 year-old vines and from well-draining, limestone and marl soils, helped by those dry stone walls. Actually quite unctuous pinot gris in the classic Alsace style in which some residual sugar is urged on by acidity with purposed equanimity. Begins in flinty smoulder, works through some terpenes, stone fruit and emerges into a world of candied lemon and pith. You can feel the barrel in that mild bitterness and in the creamy texture. A fulfilling wines with classicism coded in its DNA. Will transform into crème brûlée floating in a mineral salts bath. Drink 2021-2028."

    92 Points - Michael Godel, WineAlign, July 2020

    "Pure and bold notes of freshly cut russet-pear peel fill the nose on this wine. The palate adds flowing pear juiciness and concentration. Bold fruitiness is held in check by pithy, not quite zesty freshness. This wine has drive and energy, with a just off-dry finish."

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.
