    Henry Of Pelham

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Bright, white and out of sight; the triumvirate of Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. Long names and hard to pronounce, so we call this wine 'White'. Not just another single varietal wine -- why choose one grape when you can have three? Think lime citrus and apple freshness with a dash of lychee fruit, in that order. As someone said at a recent event, tastes like a sun-vacation. > Learn More

    $88.50

    Henry Of Pelham

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

    6 x 750 ml


    ... one of Ontario's liveliest Sauvs, crisp and minerally with lots of grapefruit and grass smells - good enough to rival any from New Zealand. A good zingy stream of acidity runs right down the center of the tongue, while the citrus apple notes caress your tastebuds "¦ there's also hints of hay and grass thrown in for good measure. This is one of those lazy days wines "¦ you know the kind of day where the sun is beating down on you and all you have to do is lie there and take it "¦ with a glass of this in your hand, it'll make it even easier to take that kind of punishment. > Learn More

    Pale straw, this wine offers lovely mineral notes mingling with orchard fruit and citrus. Dry, medium bodied, dashing clean acidity underlines the flavours of lime zest, ripe apple and pear. The fine silky texture and crisp refreshing finish make it a must-have wine and a great choice for ham or turkey. Pick up a few bottles. > Learn More

    Henry Of Pelham

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml


    Henry of Pelham makes some of the longest-lived Rieslings in Niagara and they back that up by releasing in the retail store back vintages from time to time. I love that the winery releases its top wines (which it makes only in the best vintages) always with some bottle age so that consumers enjoy the wine as it is meant to be enjoyed. We tend to drink Niagara Rieslings (all Rieslings, in fact) far too young. With appropriate age, those wonderful petrol notes emerge and the acid softens to show a more balanced expression of this lovely variety. This is a gorgeous Riesling and one that will age gracefully for 10 years or more. The nose shows intense citrus-pear fruit with wet-stone minerality, petrol and an attractive waxy-lanolin note beginning to emerge. It is juicy and racy on the palate with that playful tension that makes Riesling so exciting, and through it all, a wonderful, fresh mineral note adds complexity and personality. It will age gracefully for 8 to 12 years. If we had a 'Grand Cru' appellation system in Ontario the Riesling vineyard of Henry of Pelham would catch attention. This vineyard produces lovely fruit. This wine is as rich and full as we find in the dry Rieslings of Alsace, and has a brilliant stripe of acidity lacing it together. The Speck family is shooting for the stars with the low yields and hand crafted care they give these grapes: job well done. > Learn More

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.
