Chardonnay-Typical taste in varietal wine: often wider-bodied (and more velvety) than other types of dry whites, with rich citrus (lemon, grapefruit) flavours. Fermenting in new oak barrels adds a buttery tone (vanilla, toast, coconut, toffee). Tasting a USD 15 Californian Chardonnay should give citrus fruit flavours, hints of melon, vanilla, some toasty character and some creaminess. Burgundy whites can taste very different.

Savory or Fruity? Understanding Types of White Wine by Color

How does the color of a white wine indicate its flavor? From very pale wines such as Pinot Grigio and sauvignon blanc to rich and intensely colored varieties such as oaked Chardonnay, Sauternes and old Riesling, the wine’s color can tell you a lot about how it tastes before you even smell it!

Sauvignon Blanc grapes: originating in Bordeaux, floral/herbaceous. In cooler climates more grassy with a hint of tropical fruit with a lot of acidity, in warmer may be more fruity but less aromatic, more tree fruity. Loire Valley in New Zealand is good.
