    A chardonnay that I would fly back to WA for is Voyager Estate - it's oaked, but the woodiness is so subtle so it's more like a full-flavoured unwooded. For unwooded chardonnay, I find Goundrey quite reliable. I also went off sauv blanc a few years ago - it just feels like it is eating acid-holes in my stomach - so now veer towards unwooded chardy.

    I'm not a red drinker, but if I do then a cool climate Pinot Noir (Tassie or Otago, NZ) is the go. Also worth a try is Pepperjack's Shiraz.

    Taking note of some riesling's mentioned in here though. I had an amazing one on a Marlborough wine tour (Saint Claire) which totally changed my pre-conceived ideas on riesling that were borne out of the awful cask wine my folks would have with dinner back in the 80s.
