  1. $88.50

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    The semi-dry, all from the original St. Urban's Vineyard, is harvested slightly later than the dry riesling from Vineland, yielding a slightly more exotic fruit profile. Although semi-dry, this is beautifully balanced between generous and fleshy texture yet lean and taught acids. There's a fine, elegant bitterness from phenolics which also helps to dry out the palate. Clean and precise; outstanding value. > Learn More

  2. $88.50

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Very clean, open, perfumed, with apple and cherry blossom, green apple aromatics, lovely crisp acids and surprising depth. It's essentially dry at just over 16 grams of sugar/liter, but there's over 10 grams of acid to balance and compensate. Terrific value. > Learn More

  3. $106.50

    Vineland Estates Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml


    Fresh ginger, allspice and tropical fruit salad burst out of glass with a welcoming salvo. It does not stop there. Round after round of apple, peach, apricot and pear thunder forth and keep you on a joyful recoil coming back for more. The palate is dry with a crisp salute of acidity that keeps the full magazine of flavour defined and firing.

    The nerve! How can it be so good so soon? In truth, this strikingly bright 2013 Sauvignon Blanc has been confidently bounding towards the bottle since the first berry was picked. Brian saw this fast rising star far off and redirected its energy to support the rapid and sure-footed maturation. "This just oozes passion fruit," reflects Brian, "plus I get a marked white pepper sensation." Juicy with a crisp acidity, this full on wine begs for a disc of fine chèvre, calamari fritti, ceviche or even smoked fish. > Learn More

    Even my young daughter has learned that shoes and watches provide keen insights. This 2016 release has huge shoes to fill given the notable pedigree of our Elevation Riesling series. We are, however, fortunate that this vintage has big, “filling” feet that are firmly rooted in our St. Urban Vineyard providing a base of crushed limestone and wet shale. Now, the “watch” is the attention-grabbing, premium bling but it should never be overstated or too showy. The bright spark of classic lemon-lime zest, orange blossom, white peach and warm apricot jam stands tall from the glass in perfect balance and cuts a figure that keeps you completely engaged. That abundance creates sensory fireworks but it is all presented with sincere humility. For us, the focused elegance of the 2016 gently renders the inner power to present a wine of boundless energy – refined.

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.
