What regions and what varietals are most expressive in blind tastings. With so many of the same varietals being produced all over the world, what do you feel the " banker wines" are, and what are some of the more difficult wines/ Regions to taste blind.
Thanks so much

Chablis from Burgundy (Chard)
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
Spanish Rioja Reservea
Italian Chianti Classico
Riesling Kabinett from Germany
Alsace French Gewurztraminer
Red Zinfandel is hard (often tastes like Merlot or Cab)
Aussie Shiraz is sometimes a banker, sometimes not focused enough to be identified
Wines like Valpolicella and Barbera mess me up, too.
