Top 10 Inexpensive White Wines of 2005 (NW)

In 2005, I drank red wines to white by at least two to one. Because of that, instead of a top twenty, I've put together just a top ten list for inexpensive white wines (price range $15 and under).

Top White Wines $15 and Under:

(1) Salmon Creek Chardonnay 2003- $5
(2) La Vielle Ferme Cotes du Luberon 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008- $6-$8
(3) Covey Run Riesling 2004- $7
(4) Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2004- $10
(5) Dry Creek Vineyards Dry Chenin Blanc 2003- $11
(6) Sebastiani Chardonnay 2001- $12
(7) La Spinetta Vigneto Moscato D'Asti 2003- $13
(8) Tohu Sauvignon Blanc 2003- $14
(9) Beringer Alluvium Blanc 2000- $15
(10) Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2000- $15

Most of these wines are good year in and year out, so don't worry so much about the specific vintage. Depending on where you live and when you're shopping, you might find a different vintage than what's listed above.
