Question: Do you know a good valued widely available all purpose white wine?

Answer: What a question. So many wines from around the world competing for your selection. Difficult to name just one white among the diverse grape varieties and blends. My suggestion would be to try quite a few different examples to find out what style you actually prefer. One good choice to start with might be a Riesling. So many excellent regions for Riesling including classic Germany & Alsace, expanding Austria vineyards, worth-discovering the USA (Washington State & Finger Lakes region of New York State), underrated from Canada (both Ontario & BC), and New Zealand. You might enjoy the drier style from either the Clare or Eden Valley in Australia. OK if your scribe has to suggest one that might fit the bill – how about Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling. You can find 2017, 2018, or 2019 in the marketplace all in screw-cap showing fresh structured dryish fragrant citrus-lime with tropical notes. Useful both as an aperitif or with a variety of food dishes. As it ages in bottle it will keep developing more petrol honey toasty notes of complexity that also are fun to monitor. A rather delicious choice.
