    Weingut Fred Loimer

    Austria (Austria), Kamptal (Austria)

    12 x 750 ml

    Duck breast, Ham, Rich Fish, White Meat


    Intense spicy aromas of ground white pepper and cardamom along with a whiff of yellow apple. Vibrant mouthfeel even with its lean body structure. On the palate are notes of greengage and dried pineapple - lovely fruitiness with graceful acidity. Good balance and tension. A discreet and elegant tarty touch on the finish.

    Domaine de Mauperthuis

    France (France), Saint-Bris (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    One of coolest Sauvignon Blanc wines we have ever tasted. This white wine made next door to Auxerre from the Sauvignon grape is often the colour of pale straw or light gold. Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with sometimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years. > Learn More

    Barrel Burner

    Central Coast (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Clean, floral aromas are light and lively, accompanying accents of baked apple and lemon tart. Lemon oil adds weight to the silky palate as elegant notes of white pepper–spiced honeysuckle coat hints of vanilla custard. This wine is decidedly on the sumptuous side, but with its fine acidity, it remains bright."

    Gini

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    A beautifully aromatic but yet dry white wine. This northern Italian wine is made with 100% garganega, displaying intense notes of white flowers, white peach, tropical fruit notes with hints of almond and mineral on the back end. Hands down, elegant and persistent.

    Domaine Deschamps Marc

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables, White Meat


    Nervous and tight smoked stone opens this youthful, sprightly Pouilly Fumé, one lined with a cushion of lees to offset the strident acidity. Medicinal lemon, tangerine, Bosc pear stream along the narrow palate, fringed with smoke and crushed rock. This cuvée is a blend of wine from numerous clay and limestone hilltops of Les Loges, specifically La Cote and Les Griottes, both averaging 20 years in vine age. Super drinkable now in youth, and will mature into something profound with time.

    Colli di Lapio

    Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Considered by many to be the best Fiano producer, Colli di Lapio's 2017 Fiano di Avellino is pale straw-green. Wild, minty aromas of fresh apricot, green apple and botanical herbs, complicated by a hint of lemon verbena. Then honeyed and flinty flavors of minty apple and spicy stone fruit. A powerful and penetrating wine that finishes long and with rising complexity.

    Tre Bicchieri Gambero Rosso for 10 of the last 13 vintages including the last 4 vintages. 

    "Wonderful fiano with sliced melon and hints of lemon rind. Hot stones, too. Full-bodied, layered and extremely flavorful with so much fruit and character. Gorgeous."

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.
