Budget Wine for party

    Looking for opinions on below white wines for a party for over 100 people in August. My family nor I are not white wine drinkers, so need opinion.
    Decided on the Niel joubert 2012 cabernet sauvignon for the red.

    Domain des grandes esperances - sauvignon blanc 2015
    Niel joubert sauvignon blanc - 2015
    Casilero del diablo 2015 sauvignon blanc
    Libertas chenin blanc 2011
    Libertas Cabernet sauvignon 2012

    I like chenin blanc but probably not as popular as sauvignon blanc, so maybe not one to get in bulk.

    Hard to go wrong with Chilean sauvignon blanc... so the casilero del diablo?

    That said, if you've gone with Niel joubert for the red, symmetry suggest go with them for the white...

    SB is a general crowd pleaser. As the previous poster said, it's probably best to purchase from the same winery.

    My recommendation is to buy a bottle, chill it well and try it out.

    Thanks for the steer odyssey and dudara.

    Went for the joubert sauvignon blanc.
