Up until a few months ago, I would have agreed with you. Fortunately, at my wife's urging, and in the spirit of Lent, I began grilling fish for Friday's dinner. Salmon became a favorite, and even though Pinot Noir is suggested for Salmon, I began trying various white wines with the grilled Salmon. I became totally blown away with some very inexpensive White Wines which paired beautifully with the Salmon (and other fish as well as chicken). A favorite new varietal that I'm particularly fond of is Torrontes (Bodega Colome Torrontes 2012 @14$ and Hermanos 2012 Torrontes @$12). If you allow the glass to sit for 30 minutes out of the fridge to take the edge off of the cold, these wines show an incredible complexity that I previously only found with a well aged Cabernet. I now have ventured into some whites, and have found an inexpensive Chardonnay that is super in the Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay 2011 @13$. I bet you'd enjoy this very much.
Drinking many Reds has really helped my pallet, so I can now also enjoy the White Wine's too. Having said all of that, I'm not willing to buy a case of Chardonnay that I haven't already tasted. Perhaps Woot can give us a 3 - 5 bottle sampler of different whites?
