WHITE  WINE  KITS


CHARDONNAY

Buttery with oaky overtones and fresh fruit flavours such as apple, pear, citrus, and melon, Chardonnay is extremely versatile. One of our most popular varieties for its richness and easy drinkability, this wine is best enjoyed in cooler weather with upscale meals. Full-flavoured dishes which have been grilled, roasted, or sauteed pair well with this wine. White meat, seafood, cream sauces and cheeses including Provolone, Gruyere, Brie, and aged Cheddar accent this Chardonnay nicely.


GEWURZTRAMINER

Lightly-oaked with whispers of rose, tropical fruit and spice, this medium-to-full bodied wine has a slightly sweet mouth offset by a soft, dry finish. Elegant with a refreshing quality, Gewurztraminer is  perfect for warm or cool evenings. This wine complements a range of foods. It goes well with fresh fruit, chicken, well-seasoned fish, and many ripe cheeses including softer cheeses such as Brie or Feta and semi-soft ripened varieties, such as Mozzarella and Muenster.


PINOT GRIGIO

A fantastic summer wine, Pinot Grigio is light-bodied and dry with the crisp flavours of honey, wildflower and smoke. It is perfect for casual entertaining and light Italian foods. This wine is particularly unique because, although a white wine, it possesses many characteristics of red wine on the dinner table. Pinot Grigio pairs well with traditional white wine fare like seafood or chicken, but it can be served with so much more. Veal, pasta and soft cheeses all make fantastic accompaniments to this wine. Camembert, Feta, Oka, and Swiss are especially nice.


RIESLING

Rich and sweet, Riesling boasts the intense flavours of fresh pear and apricot offset by bold floral and honey undertones. Perfect to serve at casual gatherings or as a sipping wine, this wine is a perennial crowd pleaser. Riesling also makes a good dessert wine as it is one of the few whites that pairs well with chocolate. It works well with most bold cheeses, from the rich tanginess of Havarti to the sharp, blue-veined profile of Stilton.


SAUVIGNON BLANC

Crisp and clean, this wine combines the smoky flavours of apple, grass and olive with a bright acidity. A medium-to-full bodied dry wine, Sauvignon Blanc can be heavy or light. It is similar to Chardonnay, but leaner. Its acidity lends it a certain versatility that allows it to pair just as well with thick stews and sauces as it does with fresh salads, spicy foods and cream sauces.


VERDICCHIO

This medium bodied and refreshing white wine has a medium to full body, a dry character and heavy oak. Verdicchio features flavours of lemon and pear with hints of juicy fruits and almond along with an herbal bouquet. This wine is well suited to light dinners and casual entertaining. Verdicchio is an exceptionally good accompaniment to pesto, tomato-based sauces and light meats.
