    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, White Meat


    Clear and bright pale yellow colour with nuances of silver/green. The nose is intense and aromatic bouquet of ripe stone fruits wrapped within a core of minerality and freshness. Second nose of tropical fruits with a touch of lemon/citrus and grass. On the palate a fresh and crisp attack on citrus and lemon-lime. Midpalate with a balanced texture and fruit weight nicely supported by a good foundation of acidity. Fresh and persistent finish on a pleasant fresh fruit expression and a hint of a gooseberry and cut grass.

    12 x 750 ml

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


    The first-ever vintage of unoaked Chardonnay, this rabble rouser of a wine is a loudmouth that said no to oak aging. Its fruit shouts out loud with gregarious and extroverted flavours.

    Megalomaniac

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "For those who prefer a leaner, cooler style of Chardonnay with seashells and subtle citrus." - International Wine and Spirits Awards 2020 

    Intense dark straw colour with bright nuances of gold and medium legs. Bouquet of ripe stone fruit, citrus, almond, with hint of oak spice, lanolin and fresh butter. Second nose shows more oak creaminess, lemon lime and dried fruits extract but with hints of vanilla beans and fresh cream. Rich but fresh attack of citrus and stone fruit. Dense and fresh midpalate with layers of ripe citrus, melon, ripe mango and wave of oak flavours around a core of firm tannins and elegant textural elements. The final is long, quite persistent and in line with the midpalate. Fruits, texture and tension create the complexity of the final of this wine.

    Megalomaniac

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "This is concentrated and has nice freshness, with a pixelated citrus fruit framing to some richer pear and white peach notes. It shows nice focus, with some stony minerality. And a bright, slightly pithy finish. No obvious oak character, but good fruit intensity. Potential for development."

    92 Points - Jaime Goode, Wine Anorak, June 2020

    "Restrained floral and lightly smoky nose and palate. The finish is long with a baked apple and woody flourish." - Decanter World Wine Awards, 2020

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.
