OK people need to keep quiet about the Paumanok Chenin, I haven't bought any yet this year ;) Looks like I need to move on it!

For high end LI white I enjoy Wolffer's Estate Chard. I have a few bottles of their 2003 cellered. I just recently enjoyed Wolffer's new Pinot Gris 2007 for a mid. priced white. It was dry, crisp, with nice acidity and worked well with my meal. I also liked Bedell's First Crush White that I had in their tasting room a few weeks ago for an everyday, food friendly, summer white. I picked up a few bottles at a local wine shop at a very fair price. There are so many out there that I havn't had though so this list is from a small sample size.

Lenn - I'm a major Sauv Blanc addict and would like to get my hand on some of these LI ones. What's the best way to find these wines - I'm in Chicago?

Can't beat a Gruner Veltliner for an all around versatile white wine.

We were out tasting on the North Fork this past weekend. The Paumanok Chenin Blanc 07 was fantastic, so was the 2007 Peconic Bay Riesling. Lenn - thank you for all the recommendations! The Harvest Inn was a great base too.

For Chardonnays, I love the Wolffer Estate Chardonnay, (though the reserve is quite nasty and smells of ammonia)but my favorite is the Palmer Reserve Chardonnay, followed closely by Lamoreaux Landing Chardonnay. I stick to Dr. Frank when it comes to Rieslings, and I also adore the Gewurztraminer and Rkatsiteli (but can't afford them on a regular basis, as is the case with the Wolffer Estate chard)
As for Sauvignon Blanc, Palmer wins hands down for me.
