    Tawse has been producing single-vineyard Gewürztraminer from the Quarry vineyard since 2009. Planted on mixed limestone and clay soils, this estate vineyard is farmed organically and biodynamically and produces exceptionally fragrant Gewürztraminer. The moderately warm 2013 vintage led to slower ripening and exceptional varietal intensity in aromatic varietals. This is clearly evident on the nose of this fragrant Gewürztraminer, bursting with lychee and guava, as well as pretty notes of rose petals. On the palate, lively notes of marmalade, mandarin and fresh ginger make this aromatic wine extremely food-friendly. With its floral notes and hint of sweetness, Gewürztraminer is the perfect choice with spicy dishes, especially Asian cuisine. It would pair beautifully with teriyaki chicken, Korean BBQ ribs, shrimp tempura and avocado rolls or Peking duck! > Learn More

    Off-dry, Tawse's light but expressive Limestone Ridge 2012 is exceptionally well-balanced, with sweet, succulent stone fruit answered perfectly by fresh, green-apple-like tartness. It should improve with three to five years in the cellar. > Learn More

    "A rich, full-bodied Niagara Chardonnay with aromas of toasted almond, golden apple and peach. A layered mid-palate with terrific replays of orchard fruit flavours. Finishes long and smooth. This wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The 2013 vintage is the inaugural release of this wine. Jim Cuddy, lead singer and guitarist of the Canadian band Blue Rodeo, has partnered with Niagara’s Tawse Winery to create a new wine bran d, Cuddy by Tawse. Cuddy is one of the country’s most iconic musicians: over the past thirty years Blue Rodeo has sold more than four million records, released 14 albums and won eleven JUNO awards. Pair with grilled chicken while enjoying an outdoor concert."

    2 x Quarry Road Chardonnay 2013

    "Bright straw. A whiff of vanillin oak complements bright citrus, banana and floral aromas. Steely, juicy and fresh, with very pure flavors of crisp citrus and banana, and with less of an oaky presence than the nose suggests. Nicely focused mineral and orchard fruit elements linger on the multilayered finish. A cooler, wetter year (the sort of year Pender likes best for Chardonnay); the grapes were picked in mid-October. This wine has not yet been released (it will be in about six months)." - 92 points - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media, Aug 2016

    2 x Tawse Estate Chardonnay 2013

    The Estate Chardonnay is a blend that changes each vintage due to the varying growing seasons and the resulting flavour profiles. This is a blend of chardonnay sourced from the four key estate vineyards and is comprised of 12% Robyn’s Block, 39% David’s Block, 35% Quarry Road and 14% Hillside. Light notes of baking spice and vanilla open up into aromas of star fruit and oak. On the palate are subtle notes of fresh apricots, honeydew melon and oak spice. A very well balanced wine with good mouth feel.

    2 x Robyn's Block Chardonnay 2013

    From the 34 year-old vines of the Robyn’s Block estate vineyard comes the fruit of the flagship Tawse Chardonnay. This vineyard, named for eldest daughter of Moray and Joanne Tawse, is known to produce a wine of superior quality. Fermented in French Oak, this chardonnay spent 14 months in barrel. The nose is abundant with aromas of tropical fruits such as ripe bananas and pineapple as well as white flower, toastiness and hints of bees wax. The palate is surprisingly tart at the beginning but soon gives way to grilled fresh pineapple, oak spice and firm white peaches.

    We are delighted to have our 2011 Estate Chardonnay on the March 2015 cover of the illustrious Decanter magazine in a feature article about the World's Best Chardonnay outside of Burgundy! It was crowned Runner Up out of 80 wines by an expert panel made up of Stephen Brook, Stephen Spurrier and Jasper Morris MW. It was also selected as Jasper Morris' favourite pick! "Ripe citrus and pineapple aromas - quite exotic with an attractive florality. Good attack, with concentrated fruit and high acidity, showing real intensity and pungency. Discreet, fresh and very persistent. An extremely classy wine. Drink 2015-2022. > Learn More

    Robyn's Block is the oldest (29 years) of the estate's Chardonnay plantings in the Twenty Mile sub-appellation. With each passing vintage, this certified organic-biodynamic wine just keeps getting better. The nose is focused and finessed with fresh citrus, touches of green apple and quince, wet stone and a floral note that all rises above the subtle oak spices. The crisp and zesty lime-citrus fruit and minerals glide on a razor sharp beam of mouth-watering acidity and light up the palate. This is pure elegance in the mouth, a complex array generous (but never weighty) fruit flavours that are balanced out by a wisp of spice that build in intensity through a long, long finish. This is irresistible now but will continue to give pleasure for five or more years. A brilliant Chardonnay made without a heavy hand in the cellar. > 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.
