    The immediate impression is the increased richness as compared to 2012, as if the Richness fruit were here in the Triomphe. What this will mean in terms of the Whimsy's potential should be cause for anticipation. This is the most triumphant essential Southbrook Chardonnay to date and much thanks must be awarded the Saunders Vineyard for helping to bolster the mix. The gentle Beamsville Bench of old-vine Chardonnay impart is ephemeral, in mineral and lushness. The layered result atop Niagara flatland fruit in Triomphe '13 is texture. This is the key and the king component. In that sense what you have here is a wine of social heredity. It is drinking well now and will do so for five plus years. > Learn More

    Southbrook Vineyards

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml


    This exquisite bottling represents the 4 barrels that winemaker Ann Sperling selected for their classic, ageable character. The ying of our warm Four Mile Creek vineyard is balanced by the yang of our cool climate region. Stunning now, our Poetica Chardonnay will reward your patience with years of development to come.

    "From selected barrels, this is a fabulous chardonnay that’s what I think of as a complete wine. It’s elegant in style, with great complexity, breadth and depth to the flavour profile, and subtle layering. The fruit is fairly restrained and is finely balanced with the well-calibrated acid. There’s some longevity here: drink to the early 2020s."

    6 x 750 ml


    Ann Sperling, Southbrook's director of winemaking and viticulture, has crafted an elegant, full-bodied white from the winery's organic and biodynamic estate. This belongs to the limited-edition Poetica line, which features short poems on the front label, in this case a verse from Toronto writer and bookmaker Lindsay Zier-Vogel. So, you get a piece of literature to absorb while your palate absorbs the pleasures within. As balanced as a Supreme Court judge, the 2011 chardonnay offers up flavours of peach, grilled pineapple and buttered popcorn on a silky frame, finishing long and toasty. Priced like a good white Burgundy and worthy of the comparison. > Learn More

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.
