    Cave Spring Cellars

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Rich Fish, Risotto, Vegetables, White Meat


    This wine offers perfumed notes of orange blossom and ripe cantaloupe, with soft herbal scents reminiscent of sage, thyme and mint in the background. The palate is rich and medium bodied, with ripe flavours of melon and red apple on the front and middle palate. A refreshing seam of acidity emerges for
    balances, carrying very persistent orange peel flavours long onto the finish.

    Cave Spring Cellars

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Borscht Cabbage Soup, Olivier Salad, Pasta, Vegetables, White Meat


    "And now for something completely different—a clone of Chardonnay known for its heady, perfume-like aromas. This opens with room-filling aromas of orange blossom, fresh-grape nuances and a distinctive musk-like perfume. A surge of viscous, slightly off-dry ambrosia coats the palate with white nectarine and tropical fruit interwoven with Meyer lemon and notions of peach skin. It’s mid-full weight with generous mouth feel and a lingering balanced aftertaste with just enough acidity to keep it crisp and refreshing. Another triumph for Cave Spring Cellars and winemaker extraordinaire, Angelo Pavan. Sip on its own or pair with grilled or pan-seared seafood."

    Konzelmann Estate Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Vegetables, White Meat


    Only the most evolved vines on our lakefront property are used to produce this elegant Riesling. Barrel fermentation and a late harvest give this wine density, richness and complexity. Lemon and lime citrus brighten the palate along with flavours of ripe grapefruit, nectarine and subtle minerality.

    The harmony between structure and acid in this wine nicely suits creamy, high-protein dishes. Try this delectable wine with chicken Cordon Bleu or a buttery crab dish.

    Snapper Rock

    Marlborough (New Zealand), New Zealand (New Zealand)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Pasta, White Meat


    A refreshingly dry Pinot Gris with great concentration. Attractive aromas of apricot mingle with fresh fig. The palate has a rounded core with flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits entwined with delicate notes of tropical fruits and exotic florals.

    "This is a light, subtly rich, refreshingly dry Pinot Gris.. A perfect match for seafood or poultry – but just as good on it’s own!" The Antipodean Sommelier.

    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.”

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Vegetables, White Meat


    Riesling was personally selected by winemakers Herbert Konzelmann and Eric Pearson to showcase and celebrate Konzelmann’s 30th Anniversary of winemaking excellence in Canada. This small batch Riesling is a blend of wine aged in acacia wood barrels and stainless steel tanks, giving it a rich complexity while still maintaining a crisp acidity. Notes of apple, lemon and lime zest are rounded out by a smooth creamy 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.
