This Argentinian winery is known for its powerful and pricey red malbecs, but its entry-level chardonnay is also reliably one of the best-quality value whites in the world. It has enough buttery richness to let you know it's a chardonnay, but that decadence is elegantly balanced with a quenching tartness of green pear and lemon that keeps it singing with your food.

The 2005 Catena Mendoza chardonnay costs $13.49 a bottle at Canals Discount Liquor Mart, 10 W. Route 70, Marlton, N.J., 856-983-4991. Available by special order in Pennsylvania for $18.99 a bottle.
