  1. $94.50

    Cave Spring Cellars

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

    6 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.

    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml

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


    “…a very fine, powerful, concentrated vintage for the CdC old vines riesling, offering plenty of flesh and bones, more full bodied than the average in Niagara (12% alcohol). The palate is almost fully dry, supported by rich, ripe acids, and length is very good to excellent. I love the brisk, lime and lemon flavours, the green apple and the citrus blossom florality. Lovely stuff.”

    Wildass Wines

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

    6 x 750 ml


    The wine delivers a balanced, textured, and crisp palate. On this Sauvignon Blanc centered assemblage one will find aromatics of crisp green apples and boxwood shrub, with some sweet caramel notes stemming from the 20 months that a quarter of this wine spent in new French barrels.

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

    A very appealing Chardonnay with an inviting nose of butterscotch and baked apple pie. Palate is generous with crunchy apple and salty notes along with wildflower honey. Well-integrated oak with bright acidity and substantial body. Finish is long and generous. > Learn More

    A great value-priced example of Spanish Albariño with balanced acidity and flavours that lean towards more tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple with crisp and zesty notes of Granny Smith apple and lime. Long, lively finish.

    Château Des Charmes

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Vegetables, White Meat


    “Bright golden colour. Tropical fruit abounds with pineapple and ripe melon alongside pronounced toasty oak. This is ripe and buttery expression of Chardonnay with lots of spicy wood and even notes of chalky minerality coming through. This wine is still youthful and though the wood is presently at the forefront, there is ample concentration of fruit for the elements to integrate beautifully.”

    Bodega Classica

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Vegetables, White Meat


    "One of a number of new projects at this restlessly innovative winery in San Vicente, this small lot white combines Viura with 20% each of Malvasía and Garnacha Blanca and spends 36 months in French oak. Rich and concentrated, yet comparatively low in alcohol, it has smoky wood, creamy lees and pithy acidity."

    Quinta da Muradella

    Monterrei (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Limpid, yellow-gold. A highly complex, mineral-laced bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, chalky minerals, sweet butter and white flowers. A hint of anise emerges with air. Shows noteworthy depth and sharp delineation in the mouth, offering vibrant orange zest, pear nectar, buttered toast and succulent herb flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful, yet graceful in character, displaying superb focus and mineral thrust on an impressively long finish that features lingering floral and orchard fruit flourishes. (Aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and used 500-liter French oak barrels.)"

    Domaine Rémi Niero

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2017 Condrieu Chery offers slightly more stone fruits, white flowers, and crushed citrus, with plenty of spice and obvious minerality coming through with time in the glass. It's vibrant, fresh and elegant on the palate, with perfect balance. It's another high-quality wine from this estate."

    95 points - Jeb Dunnuck, Jan 2019

     
    "Niero's 2017 Condrieu Chéry comes from vines around 70 years old. It's floral and ripe, with apricot and pineapple flavors in a full-bodied but balanced format. Rich and plush on the palate, it showcases the opulent texture and decadent fruit of Viognier, yet it remains fresh and spicy on the long, harmonious 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.
