Top White Wine

My wine reviews include White wines with high scores for their superb quality and taste, and their prices often reflect this as they tend to be more expensive. These White wines achieve a score of 90 points or higher out of 100 and are often the wines that have the greatest aging ability and are therefore great White wines for your cellar. They are also often the top ranked wines on many lists, especially in fine restaurants, with ratings that reflect their craftsmanship. You'll also find my reviews of White wines that are less expensive, but still represent great value. This is just a small set of my wine reviews: when you join my wine community, you can access all of my reviews.

Kim Crawford Dry Riesling 2007
Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand
Vintages Wine Panel: This dry Riesling is made in a distinctively New Zealand style. It has zesty lime and grapefruit characters with an underlying minerality. The palate is clean and vibrant, with good depth of flavor and acidity. Enjoy it with shellfish, such as clams, scallops and mussels. My note: Bone-dry Riesling that’s simply delicious! High on the hedonistic scale. Aromas of white peach, lime, lemongrass and sunny days running through a field of white flowers. Medium-bodied and zesty. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $19.95 Score: 90/100

Konzelmann Estate Winery Special Select Late Harvest Vidal 2006
V.Q.A., Ontario, Canada
Vintages Wine Panel: This wine earned a Gold Medal at the 2008 International Wine Competition. My note: Suffused with ripe apricot, pineapple, kiwi, gooseberry and passionfruit aromas. Lovely texture and richness, but not too heavy. A perfect close to a sumptuous dinner. Late Harvest Vidal food pairings: grilled salmon steaks, Chinese dishes, fettucine alfredo, spring rolls. Alcohol: 10%  375 ml  Price: $19.95 Score: 90/100

Patrick Lesec Chardonnay 2005
A.C., Burgundy, Meursault, France
Vintages Wine Panel: A pretty Meursault that displays all the virtues of this region’s Chardonnay. It features aromas of apple, pear compote, thistle and gentle smoke from the well-handled oak. Dry, crisp and nicely balanced, this is a full-bodied, long-finishing wine. My note: Stunningly opulent Chardonnay with a rich core of hazelnut and almond essence wrapped in ripe pear and green apple. Sophisticated, full-bodied and enduring on the finish. You have to love oak with this wine but it’s judiciously integrated with the fruit and weight of the wine. Chardonnay food pairings: lobster, soft cheeses, fine pâté, roast chicken, pork, cream sauces. Alcohol: 14%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2009‐2016  Price: $49.95 Score: 90/100
