    Sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. The 2017 Tawse Riesling is a blend from carefully sourced hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. As such, this balanced wine is a wonderful expression of both terroir and vintage, as well as a great value! The nose is bursting with rich aromas of citrus fruits, pineapple, wet stone, and honeysuckle. Notes of meyer lemon and mandarin have a bright expression on the palate. This deliciously off-dry Riesling has a creamy mouthfeel so delicately balanced with a mouthwatering finish.

    "Wow! This is an intense, nervy riesling with all kinds of apple, citrus and floral (jasmin) character. It is medium weight, just off dry but so well balanced in terms of acid and sugar, with really impressive fruit intensity and drive. It is bracing and almost relentless in terms of flavour depth. There is a hint of CO2 adding to the brightness. Some grapefruity bitterness on the finish. Excellent to outstanding length."

    Tawse Winery

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Baking spice, mineral notes and Granny Smith apple aromas waft easily from this well-paced, well-priced chardonnay. A delightful mouthful of tropical fruit, tangy lemon curd and notions of caramel blanket the palate, balanced and beautiful, medium bodied, nicely textured showcasing persistent purity of fruit and no small amount of charm along with a lengthy mouth-watering aftertaste. Pour on its own or alongside roast chicken or roast pork."

    The 2016 Cuddy By Tawse Chardonnay is a blend from carefully sourced hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. The 2016 vintage endured a hot and dry summer, translating to more opulent and robust Chardonnay grapes. This wine is an excellent example of terroir, vintage, and great value! The nose greets you with pineapple, pear and caramel apple. The palate is crisp and expressive with bright apple and citrus notes which are complemented by a buttery mouthfeel.

     

    Tawse is proud to partner with Canadian music icon and Order of Canada recipient Jim Cuddy to introduce “Cuddy by Tawse” Chardonnay. Jim collaborated with winemakers Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede to create this premium barrel-fermented blend. Aged 12 months in French oak, this wine displays aromas of Bosc pear, baking spice, white flower and hints of wet stone minerality. Crips notes of grapefruit are accompanied by apple and pear and a touch of shy oak, resulting in a beautiful mouth feel on the palate.

    Tawse Winery

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    This 2017 Quarry Rd Gewurztraminer is a show stopping example of an aromatic wine in the Tawse portfolio. On the nose are complex and ambrosial aromas of fresh peach, rose petal, and ginger spice. The creamy mouthfeel envelops the palate with flavours of candied ginger, peaches, and lime zest. There is a noticeable sweetness on the finish.

  6. $323.40

    Tawse Winery

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "This is a tropical and floral beauty on the nose—pineapple, guava, honeysuckle, rose water—with a back drop of mineral notes. This is medium-bodied with a nice roundness on the palate but absolutely no residual sugar, leaving all the stage to cantaloupe and pineapple flavours, bright citrus acidity, energetic minerality and a ginger hint emerging in the long delectable finish. This gem will shine alongside steamed mussel or a seared red tuna salad with an Asian flair."

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.
