Wonderfully fresh and aromatic, the Novelty Hill Chardonnay is bursting with crisp apple, juicy pear and a hint of baking spice. The fruit gains intensity on the palate, with the wine’s lively, balanced acidity adding to the mouthfeel. Rich and textured across a lengthy finish.
About the Vineyard: Novelty Hill’s Stillwater Creek estate vineyard is located on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills in Washington State’s Columbia Valley. The fractured basalt found throughout the site imparts an appealing mineral character to Chardonnay planted here. Innovative clonal selection distinguishes the vineyard as well, including Entav clone 95, a relative newcomer to the Columbia Valley.
