THE WILD PIXIE 2015
In 2006, Chester added a small parcel of Roussanne to The Stump Jump White. A wine journalist described him as a 'wild pixie' for concocting such a crazy blend. Taking that as a compliment, Chester went on to make an even more audacious blend with Roussanne, this time combining it with Shiraz.
Lovely dark, savoury Shiraz fruits on the nose. Cocoa, blackberry, cedar, spice and roast meats. The palate has incredible depth but at the same time has a lovely elegance driven by a fine core of graphite like tannins and a deliciously mouth-watering acidity. Serious Shiraz but not of the sweet, jammy kind. Complex, dark, savoury, powerful yet elegant. A wine that will continue to reward careful cellaring and is sure to seduce even the most sophisticated of wine palates.
