Skin contact Chenin Blanc. 8-day maceration, super approachable. Loads of texture & spice, with notes of orange pith & a super saline finish.
The honey & bread aroma combined with its dry & racy texture has made it a huge hit already.----
Testalonga is the brainchild of Craig Hawkins - a superstar of the low intervention wine scene in his native Swartland, South Africa.
Craig travelled and worked extensively in Europe, carrying out vineyard work in Portugal, Italy Spain & Austria. Now using typical South African grape varieties, farmed organically, Craig & his wife Anna experiment a little each vintage, playing with different techniques in both their El Bandito & Baby Bandito range. The wines are always made with little to no additions in both the vineyard & cellar and truly represent Craig, Anna & the exciting natural wine movement of Swartland.
