2020 Testalonga El Bandito 'Cortez' Chenin Blanc. Swartland-South Africa.
100% Chenin Blanc (no skin maceration). Craig Hawkins is one of the most influential winemkaers of South Africa and New World wines. Not bending to the 'rules' as his winemaking methods lend his wine to show such depth.
Hand harvested & whole bunch pressed. Fermented in old French oak barrels, no inoculation or addditives other than a dash of CO2 on bottling. 100% Malolactic fermentation, not fined or filtered. Organic and that.
