'Skin macerated. The nose is overtly perfumed as you would expect but also a slight petrol-like note that adds intrigue while the palate shows dense fruit and bright acidity, a gently grippy quality to the finish. Rather charming.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100

Winemaker's notes:
Organically farmed bush vines planted in the 1952, they are situated in a very “wet” part of the Paardeberg, at the bottom of the slope, and this helps with ripening the large berries fully. 2021 was a very healthy year (unlike 2020 which resulted in no crop being salvageable), the skins were light and golden which helped with skin fermentation.

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.
