If you follow the rule of one drink an hour, it wont matter what you drink, you wont get sick. Well, unless you have a sickly stomach to start with.
: It all depends where you're located, and what your favorite type of whites is. Do you like potent or light, fruity or oaky? Let me know, and I'll find you the answer.
I would choose different types of white depending on the type of Wild Alaskan Salmon being served. Wild Alaskan Sockeye has a robust flavor and a Fume Blanc or even a light Chardonnay would compliment the fish nicely.
I would serve white zinfandel.

Assuming you mean unopened bottles...chardonnay should generally be consumed within 1-3 years of the release date. There are however many chardonnays that can last longer, sometimes up to 20 years or even decades longer, but at that point you will be drinking something that is a very specialized taste and will have needed to have been produced from an extremely high-end winery. Many of the chardonnays from the Burgundy region in France can last decades.
