El Bandito Cortez 2023

Elegant and visceral

The El Bandito Cortez 2023 is a pure, visceral expression of Chenin from a single vineyard in the Paardeberg. Craig and Carla Hawkins have been working this vineyard since Testalonga’s inception, and it always yields great acidity and a low pH – producing wines that evolve beautifully. This is a special Chenin for the connoisseur who appreciates refinement, detail, finesse and energy.

Craig and Carla make terroir-driven wines that are upbeat and fresh. Focusing on the Swartland, they celebrate authenticity and wine in its most unadulterated form. The couple have long been pushing the boundaries, and these are SA’s ultimate ‘geek wines’ – daring and different, but in the best sense!
