Whites don't have the problem being sun bleached like the darker colored wines. As the color darkens usually so do the bottles. I put a Chardonnay in clear bottles if I haven't added anything to give some amber coloring. Not so much for any other reason but to show its clarity and body. There is nothing wrong with a white wine in a dark bottle. If you have darker amber hues or getting toward the honey colors then I would put it in darker bottles as the light could effect color and then as the color bleaches it could have an impact on flavor.
Remember the presentation in the bottle will be the first impression. I spend a bit of time on a label and usually have the green or amber bottles depending on what it is. Blue bottles however are usually frost wines.
