Novelty Hill "Royal Slope White" Stillwater Creek Vineyard" 2010 wine review by (PB)
Palate--Very structured and well integrated wine with exotic fruit none of which I can really put a single ID on. I was stumped as to the composition of this wine as was my wife. Turns out it is a blend of 2/3 Viognier then Roussanne, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. This explains the bouquet and why I couldn't put my finger on a specific fruit(s) on the palate. Perhaps this is why this wine, which sells for $19, was reduced at a state store to $10.
At $10 this Washington State wine (Columbia Valley) is a really nice wine and quite delicious and I would raise several glasses if I had more at that price!
