'Red and black berry but also some nutty, earthy notes on the nose while palate shows juicy fruit, pronounced acidity and grippy tannins. Rustic but pleasingly so.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100

Winemaker's notes:
Planted in 2001, bush vine (un-trellised), farmed organically. This is a block that is fairly vigorous for the dry soils of the Swartland and produces a good number of high-quality grapes with very juicy large berries. We try keep as many leaves as possible to shade the block as it can suffer from sunburn. 2021 was a great vintage for this block, as we achieved great levels of acidity and higher alcohols combined with a much lower pH than normal, again a result of good rains and continued improvements in the vineyard.

Producer information Testalonga was established in 2008 by owners Craig and Carla Hawkins. The winemakers follow organic farming principles, which are still uncommon in Cape winemaking. The name Testalonga comes from a Sicilian outlaw and their wines are separated into two ranges, El Bandito and Baby Bandito. The wines have quirky names and labels and only small quantities are available for the local market.
