    Quinta da Muradella

    Monterrei (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Limpid, yellow-gold. A highly complex, mineral-laced bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, chalky minerals, sweet butter and white flowers. A hint of anise emerges with air. Shows noteworthy depth and sharp delineation in the mouth, offering vibrant orange zest, pear nectar, buttered toast and succulent herb flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful, yet graceful in character, displaying superb focus and mineral thrust on an impressively long finish that features lingering floral and orchard fruit flourishes. (Aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and used 500-liter French oak barrels.)"

    Bodega Classica

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Vegetables, White Meat


    "One of a number of new projects at this restlessly innovative winery in San Vicente, this small lot white combines Viura with 20% each of Malvasía and Garnacha Blanca and spends 36 months in French oak. Rich and concentrated, yet comparatively low in alcohol, it has smoky wood, creamy lees and pithy acidity."

    Ham, Pasta, Rich Fish, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Gorgeously aromatic, with spring flowers, juicy lemons, guava and similarly tropical fruits, then peaches and cream, musky grape, finally tied together with fresh-apple acidity."

    Domaine de Mauperthuis

    Chablis (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    From a new family (relatively speaking) to Chablis, the estate belongs to Marie-Noëlle & Laurent Ternynck. The old vines Chablis saw 12 months in foudres, on the lees, with fruit gathered from vineyards in Fleys. The cool spot comes with a higher altitude, on a windswept plateau and so harvest is generally five to six days later. And so their Chablis is cool, direct, taut and sapid stuff, as Chablis will go, from such a climat and handled so. Acidity runs rampant and travels quickly up and down and into parts of the mouth that stand up to take notice. Sharp and focused Chablis.

    Jean-Marc Burgaud

    Beaujolais (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Pale yellow-gold. Mineral-accented pear nectar and orange scents, along with subtle honeysuckle and fennel nuances. Smooth and weighty but lively as well, offering gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors that pick up toasted brioche and sweet butter notes on the back half. Finishes with firm, spicy cut, a hint of bitter pear skin and lingering florality.

    Domaine Deschamps Marc

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables, White Meat


    Nervous and tight smoked stone opens this youthful, sprightly Pouilly Fumé, one lined with a cushion of lees to offset the strident acidity. Medicinal lemon, tangerine, Bosc pear stream along the narrow palate, fringed with smoke and crushed rock. This cuvée is a blend of wine from numerous clay and limestone hilltops of Les Loges, specifically La Cote and Les Griottes, both averaging 20 years in vine age. Super drinkable now in youth, and will mature into something profound with time.

    Domaine Muré - Clos Saint Landelin

    Alsace (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Herring, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, White Meat


    "Gentle pear fruit has a touch of herbal tisane. The same gentle purity of fruit is amplified on the streamlined, dry palate where freshness and ripeness seem to flow from a deep well of pear and lemon. Taut and balanced, this is utterly moreish and perfectly dry. Drink until 2030."

    Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Brilliant straw colour, youthful, medium intensity aromas of white peach, stonefruit, green apple & citrus. Bright acidity & freshness on the palate, round mouthfeel, & refreshing. Distinctly Oregonian; a clean, fresh, & refreshing style of Pinot Gris."

    Creekside Estate

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    A heady perfume of honeysuckle, mandarin orange and apricot with whiffs of fennel and white pepper. What Viognier is really all about though, is that textural magic. The wine is very weighty and unctuous on the palate but resolves back into a feather light, finelyfocused finish. Kinda like a sumo wrestler that can dance a beautiful ballet.

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.
