About Testalonga:
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.

Viticulture:
Hand-harvested then fermented in fibreglass tanks at a temperature of 8 degrees. It was racked 9 times during fermentation to remove the sediment. At a sugar of 55g/l it was bottled under crown cap where it was left to finish fermentation and build up a natural pressure of carbon dioxide. After 10 months the bottles were riddled and disgorged and topped with the same wine (from other decanted bottles) and crown capped again. No SO2 was ever added to the wine and neither was any settling or fining agent.

Alc: 12.5%
