If You Like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, You'll Like . . .
Wines like these are mostly dry, and feature lively, full aromas with a bit more structure than the sweet ones. This isn't to say they can't display lush fruit: they're just more about the aroma and a crisp finish.
Chamblaise - Code word for 'California-style faux-Chablis', this is usually a blend of French Columbard, Chenin Blanc, and a bit of Thompson. Crisp, with a refreshing finish and a hint of fruit.
Pinot Blanc/Pinot Bianco - White berried mutation of Pinot Noir, this is medium bodied, with apple, citrus and floral notes, with a usually dry finish.
Viognier - A bit tricky, as this wine can be finished sweet as well, but usually it's made to a style that emphasizes peach, apricot, dried pineapple and spice.
Verdicchio - Light and crisp, with herbal notes of pear and a lemony finish.
