Most wines are named after the grapes they come from. Whites: Chardonnay, Riesling (can be both very dry or very sweet), Gewurztraminer (floral, spicy), Sauvignon Blanc (grassy flavor). Reds: Cabernet Sauvignon (very tannic), Merlot (less tannic, softer than Cab), Pinot Noir (few tannins, high aciditiy), Syrah (color, spice), Zinfandel (bold red, fruity), Grenache (sweet).

Answer by  MrJason (31)

Shiraz, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, pinot grigio/gris, reisling, merlot, viognier, gewertztraminer. I would happily suggest these varietals and, from experience in the wine shop where I work, in this approximate order depending on what weather season we are experiencing. Blends of the above are also popular but difficult to quantify within the parameters of the question.
