What do you mean by classic? I haven't seen this blend in old world wines. But I was planning to become one of the suckers of the White SR, almost bought it, but switched to other wine eventually.

I actually tasted for the first time last night the new RSR white 2010, and while it was quite a good and very pleasant white wine, even better IMHO than the 2009 with more complexity than most israeli white wines, I think it is still way overpriced. Dalton were pouring their Alma white blend (Chardonnay-Viognier) 2011. A lot better than the 2010 which I didn't like that much, and it was I thought as good as the RSR although less than half the price. That said, as good as the Alma is this vintage, it still does not make up for the late Wild Yeast Viognier Reserve...
