After 69 days trapped almost a half-mile below the earth's surface, I'd want a glass of white wine. Here are a few white wines to toast to the freedom of 33 lucky men. Starting with the 2009 Cousino-Macul Sauvignon Gris ($15), which has a fragrant nose of nectarine, acacia flowers and citrus fruits. The 2009 In Situ Chardonnay, Winemaker's Selection ($13), is a charming chardonnay that offers up aromas of green apple and nectarine and a whisper of vanilla. The 2009 Luis Felipe Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Family Selection ($9) offers flavors of apple and nectarine with notes of citrus and tropical fruit. The 2009 Lurton Hacienda Araucano Sauvignon Blanc Reserva ($13) has bright notes of peach, nectarine and gooseberry. Another wine to try: 2009 Cono Sur Riesling ($9; 2009 Cono Sur Vision Viognier ($13).
