Seeking fruity, dry, affordable white

Tony Miller | May 15, 2007 07:07 PM

Over the years I have had three favorite whites, all of which are now extinct:

Robert Mondavi Traminer (not Gewurz) - almost like grapefruit juice. Tart, fruity, some wood, very refreshing (early '70s)

Joseph Heitz Chablis - dirt cheap, like $1.99. Very oakey and fragrant ('80s)

Bonny Doon Malvasia Bianca - fruity, dry, tangy. Delicious! ~$12.99 (discontinued 2005)

All are now discontinued, to my dismay. Can anybody who was familiar with any of these suggest similar substitutes, preferably under $10 (not a firm requirement, if it's good)?

I am a fan of Gewurztraminer, and in the absence of another really good white, will drink that happily.
