I've made white wine from grapes the last 4 years; Chard, Chard, Viognier and this year's 24 gallons of Chenin Blanc. I've typically bottled in Feb, but I'm trying to find a reason not to do it Jan as I could use the containers. The Chenin is non-mlf, no oak, cold crashed pretty solid this year. It tastes nice, has been racked a few times and no fallout noted since the last racking a few weeks ago. I will transfer to carboys an bring them in the house to degass a bit and run them through a 1 micron filter the day before bottling. I know every wine is different, but when do you usually bottle your whites from grapes?
