Which whites to buy now?

I have been trekking for a while and been abstinent, but am now back in the game.

My cellar is running quite low on white wines, so what would I buy? There are now many good Chardonnays on the market, but most of them are quite pricey. Instead, I bought some other wines, based on recent drinking experiences:

-2008 Petaluma Riesling. Apparently a very good vintage for this wine. I recently had the 2002 which was superb. You could drink it now or keep for many years. $25/bottle

-2008 Meerea Park Hell Hole Semillon. I loved the 07 for its crispness and leanness. The 08 is supposedly just as good. $23/bottle

-2007 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc. I think this is always a good Marlborough SB. Not as grassy as others and well priced. $18/bottle
