    Cherry Block Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019

    The extreme cold night and long summer days of New Zealand's Central Otago region are the conditions that serve to produce the vivid, rich and spicy Cherry Block Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry, raspberry are complemented by spice and mushrooms.

     

    "Youthfully expressed and delightfully lifted, the wine shows sweet raspberry, cherry, floral, subtle spice and almond characters. The palate delivers lovely weight and roundness together with fine texture and bright acidity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2023."

    90 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2020

     

    Pirinoa Road Chardonnay 2018

    "Wonderfully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows golden peach, rockmelon, baked fig, vanilla and cedar characters. It is equally impressive on the palate with excellent weight and persistency. The wine offers fabulous complexity backed by creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2022." 

    94 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019

     

    Hawk's Bay Chardonnay 2018

    A fragrant bouquet bursting with stone fruit and melon with hints of lemon peel.  Rounded texture with rich vanilla and nutty toast are balanced by the refreshing acidity and long finish.  A perfect match with rich seafood, white meats and salads.

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.
