The Wine

In a 2006 blending session of The Stump Jump White fourth generation winemaker Chester Osborn took the unusual step of adding a small parcel of the relatively unknown variety Roussanne. A well known wine journalist reviewed the finished wine and described Chester as a ’wild pixie’ for concocting such a crazy blend. Taking the moniker as a compliment Chester was inspired to make an even more audacious blend involving Roussanne, this time combining it with Shiraz.

Aromas

Deep garnet/purple, the 2011 The Wild Pixie has a nose of red currants, red and black cherries, crushed blackberries and pepper with a hint of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with good concentration, the palate has exuberant red and black berry flavors, a solid frame of grainy tannins and a long finish.

Food Match

A very good wine to enjoy with either beef or lamb, also goes nicely with mature and hard cheeses.
