knuss, first of all, welcome. You might want to give Sauvignon Blanc a try. There are many different styles, it is produced in many wine regions, and with a few exceptions is usually a very good value. Some of my friends have mistaken the acidity and citrus profiles on some versions for sweetness, but most versions of SB are really dry. For starters, I would consider Chateau Ste. Michelle from Columbia Valley, WA. It's readily availble for about 10 bucks and is usually very consistent between vintages. Sharper, more "tangy" versions can be found from New Zealand. Look for 2010 Brancott or Nobilo, at about the same price point. Good luck!
