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.

With its limestone-rich clay and picturesque hillsides, Burgundy is the birthplace of Chardonnay. Unlike California Chardonnay, these French producers use less new French oak for aging (which imparts the heavy vanilla and baking spice tones) and use mostly stainless steel or neutral barrel (which don't). The result is a more delicate, less in-your-face chard. This white Burgundy offers refined nuances of peach, apricot, and almond, with a crisp acidity.
Take everything you think you know about Chardonnay and throw it out the window; the Chablis region is the cleanest, most precise interpretation of the Chardonnay varietal. William Fevre is a prized producer in Chablis and receives critical acclaim year after year. The producer's rejection to oak aging leads to crisp, mineral-driven whites. No butter, no vanilla, just underripe green apples and white flowers. Intriguing (maybe a little confusing), right?! You should drink a bottle to fully understand.
Riesling is the favored grape of Germany, and it's easy to see why: The steep terraced vineyards in this region rely on sunshine reflecting off the Mosel River to ripen. The result is a magically off-dry, boldly acidic wine with notes of ripe Bosc pear, green apple, and notable minerality. The delicate sweetness would balance the heat from spicy food nicely.
Pikes has gained an international following for its dry Riesling. It aims to create wines that showcase the uniqueness of the region and vintage. Australian Rieslings are usually characterized by their "limey-ness," but this bottle is balanced with aromas of lemon, green apple, and floral notes.
