1997 Georges Duboeuf Viognier, Vin de Pays de l'Ardeche ($8).Georges Duboeuf, the Beaujolais producer extraordinaire, continues his successful foray into the south of France with this delicious dry white wine. Viognier is the classic white-wine grape of the northern Rhone, and this wine does a convincing imitation of a $35 Condrieu at a bargain price. It displays the typical viognier flavors of peach, spices, melon, orange and nuts. Like all viogniers, it should be consumed young - preferably before the end of this year.

2004 Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc, Casablanca Valley ($10). This highly regarded Chilean winery wasted no time getting this white wine to market - a move that pays off in freshness and liveliness. The wine offers vibrant pear, citrus, herb and mineral flavors that would be well-matched with spicy seafood dishes. There's no need to worry about cork taint because it comes with a screw top.

2007 Kim Crawford Unoaked Chardonnay From: Marlborough, New Zealand Price: $17 Serve with: Seafood, Asian cuisine Oak-free chardonnay is a white wine that is usually better in concept than execution because winemakers tend to reserve their best chardonnay grapes for fermentation in barrels.

This stylish, substantial dry white wine - made from a once-obscure but increasingly popular Rhone Valley grape - delivers ample flavor at a reasonable price. There are nuances of peach, melon, herbs and lychee in a wine that faithfully imitates the style of the great wines of Condrieu. This is one of the better California viogniers I've tasted in recent years. grilled salmon or swordfish

This wine from Southern Italy is a 50-50 blend of two of the region's finest white-wine grapes - varietals that date to Roman times. It's a fresh, dry wine with nuances of nuts, pear, chalk and other minerals. For its price, it offers good complexity. My guess is that it will be at its best between now and Labor Day. Serve with shrimp, white-fleshed fish.

It's a dry but fruity wine with penetrating flavors of lime, apple, sweet pea, fresh asparagus and minerals. Its aroma is very fresh and reminiscent of wet stone. Its finish is long and satisfying. Serve with white-fleshed fish, Southeast Asian cuisine.
