The Wild Pixie Shiraz Roussanne
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.
A bright and lifted nose of red and black jubes and a whiff of white pepper spice. Characteristic black olive and dusty earth tones give a more savoury balance. The finer, persistent fruit tannins at the front of the palate flow generously to round out the mid palate to give great structure and a long lingering finish.
