100% Chenin Blanc

Tasting notes:
'Grapes from a 1972 Paardeberg vineyard on granite. Fermented on the skins for 12 days. A relatively shy nose compared to the above – hints of citrus and stone fruit plus earth and spice. Of Hawkin’s white wines, this appears to have the most weight and depth although with an alcohol of 11.78%, it’s still light by most standards. Lovely texture and freshness.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 94/100

Alc: 9% | RS: 2.3 g/L

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.
