    "A dynamic little Riesling for the price. Bold lime-infused citrus with a splash of peach fruit and mineral undertones on the nose. It’s refreshing and citrus-laden on the palate with a nice clean finish."

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    The semi-dry, all from the original St. Urban's Vineyard, is harvested slightly later than the dry riesling from Vineland, yielding a slightly more exotic fruit profile. Although semi-dry, this is beautifully balanced between generous and fleshy texture yet lean and taught acids. There's a fine, elegant bitterness from phenolics which also helps to dry out the palate. Clean and precise; outstanding value. > Learn More

    "I am very proud of this wine. Every year, each vintage, it earns medals and accolades. It often takes a back seat to Icewine but pound-for-pound this wine is fantastic value. Our Late Harvest Riesling is a rich and flavourful dessert wine. In the glass the aromas of citrus and tropical fruit leap out and fill your nose. When you take a sip it is full and sweet, but not too sweet, with laser sharp balancing acidity. This estate bottled wine is excellent to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for many years."

    Cave Spring Cellars

    6 x 750 ml


    On the nose, scents of white flowers, wet stone, and cantaloupe emerge over top hints of black licorice and fresh herbs. The palate is medium dry with concentrated pink grapefruit and mandarin orange on the attack, giving way to yellow cherry fruit on the mid-palate. The finish is very persistent, with notes of crushed stone, spice and citrus zest. The long, cool ripening of this vintage has delivered remarkable flavour complexity and a seamless integration of body and acidity on the palate.

    Showing great concentration, the nose exhibits intense aromas of ripe pear, white peach and lime-citrus, complemented by delicate floral notes. Dry in style, the palate shows complex citrus and green melon fruit up front, with outstanding middle palate weight and an accent of white pepper. The wine’s focused fruit carries through to a very bright and persistent finish. Dry but not austere, this vintage stands out for its balance of vivacious fruit, full extraction and rich texture.

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.
