  1. $179.40

    Polloni

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Polloni Spumante distinguishes itself with a beautiful creamy mousse and a lovely nose with hints of citrus, peach, apple and notes of white flowers. Soft and creamy on the palate with great freshness and balance. While this would make a lovely aperitif, it has more than enough character to accompany grilled fish and fruit desserts. > Learn More
  2. $275.40

    Tessari

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    This has a gorgeous, exotic and refined nose of linden/jasmine, lemon blossom, tangerine and peach. It is medium-full bodied, very tidy, lively yet rich with lovely concentration and focus. Nicely firm and mineral with bitter lemon on the finish. The length is excellent.

  3. New Soave Classico DOC by Gini 2018

    $359.40

    Gini

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese


    "Gini’s Soave Classico is a fantastic value, combining the concentration given by old vines (averaging 70 years of age) with a buoyant, floral freshness from the moderate 2018 growing season. A blend of fruit from five crus, each vinified separately in stainless-steel vats, the wine offers flavors of pear, yellow apple and green almond propelled by mouthwatering acidity that invites another sip, and then another glass."

    91 points / Best Buy - Wine & Spirits Magazine, Feb 2020

    "Vivid straw-yellow. Delicious aromas of herbs, lime, almond kernel and jasmine. Bright, dense and juicy, with a glyceral but vibrant mouthfeel and very pure flavors of green apple, pear and white peach. Finishes long and mineral. This is a knockout entry-level Soave that boasts sneaky concentration and extreme purity of fruit. Absolutely lovely and one of the better Soaves at this price point that I have memory of in quite some time."

    Gini

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Rich Fish, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "Radiant and loaded with finesse, this stunning white opens with enticing scents of fragrant spring flower, acacia, white stone fruit and wild herb. The round, elegant palate is focused, precise and energetic, delivering peach, Bartlett pear, ginger and tangerine drop candy alongside bright acidity. It closes on a tangy mineral note evoking crushed oyster shell. A gorgeous wine. Drink through 2028."

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.
