Whether you are looking for crisp and refreshing chardonnay or the rich vanilla flavours of oaked chardonnay, our selection of white wine online has something for everyone. We also offer a comprehensive collection of Riesling, Pinot Grigio, and Muscat wines online. White wines display an exciting range of fruit, oak, and floral notes, influenced by the grape variety and terroir of each individual bottle and region from which it originates.
The process of making white wine and selling it online involves crushing and pressing the grapes, fermenting the juice, and aging the wine in barrels until it is ready to be bottled and distributed. The process can be complicated as different grape varieties require a slightly different approach to achieve their maximum potential.
When creating a white wine, it is important to ensure that the sugar levels are correctly calculated in order to produce a balanced drink. This is especially true for dry white wine, where the balance between the sugar and acid levels is critical for a crisp and refreshing taste. To achieve this, the winemaker must carefully monitor the development of the sugar levels and harvest the grapes at technological maturity.
A white wine with too much sugar will be sweet and heavy. However, if the winemaker doesn’t harvest the grapes at the correct time, the wine will be too acidic and will not have enough liveliness. Once the grapes have been harvested, they are transported to the winery where they are crushed and fermented. The fermentation process takes place in tanks, vats, and barrels and the wine is left to age for a few months or even years. This enables the wine to develop its unique flavour and to mature to its optimum quality.
After the wine has been aged, it is bottled and sealed, and labeled in preparation for its journey to the consumer. The quality and price of a white wine depends greatly on the reputation of the winery, the region where the wine is produced, and its vintage. Choosing an old vintage will guarantee a high-quality wine with an excellent price/quality ratio.
White wine is best served chilled to preserve its freshness and enhance the enjoyment of its flavours. It pairs well with a variety of foods and can be enjoyed as an aperitif or as a complement to a main meal. It goes particularly well with seafood and chicken. It is also a good choice for salads and mild cheeses.
The light, crisp, fruity flavors of a white wine are often described as being reminiscent of citrus and apple with subtle hints of vanilla and butter. Many wine online sellers are proud to stock the finest white wines from all over the world including California-USA, New Zealand, and Australia. Try La Crema chardonnay Monterey or Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand for the full classic flavours of these two great varieties. Alternatively, opt for the Berton Vineyard Foundstone pinot grigio for refreshing flavours of lime and green apple or the racy citrus of a Riesling from Mosel in Germany or Alsace, France.
