'Skin macerated. Enticing aromatics of citrus, peach, potpourri and honey while the palate has nice weight and breadth, bright acidity and a gently savoury finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

Winemaker's notes:
Planted in 1981, bush vine (un-trellised), farmed organically. This is a 1.5ha block we “discovered” which was abandoned in 2014, we approached the farmer Rick Mcgrindle and asked if we could try and revive it. The vineyard gives a very specific salty character to the wines, maybe not as intense as those from the heart of the Paardeberg but there is a definite salinity which we love. This may be because it is only 30km from the ocean or just the character that chenin gets on these soils.

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.
