Testalonga Baby Bandito Stay Brave Chenin Blanc

£17.95

A pretty nose with notes of flowers, herbs and ginger before lemon and orange aromas develop. The palate is packed full of fruit, citrus and minerals to go with bright acidity. Light and energetic, with some complexity and roundness from the oak treatment.

Description

Craig Hawkins is a young winemaker based in the Swartland, South Africa, where he rents about 11ha of vineyard. Having travelled extensively throughout Europe, and then worked as wine maker for Lammershoek, he now makes makes a huge variety of different wines under his own Testalonga label.

Craig says:’Baby Bandito is a project we started in 2015. We wanted to work with vineyards that deliver wines that can be drunk young yet still “over deliver” in quality one would expect from our most affordable wine. There was a heavy influence from street artists (the good ones, not just your drunk student defacing someone’s wall, unless it was good) in the labels and the idea of a “series” using different and bright colours. The names of the wines come from expressions that we use as if giving encouragement to a child.  The photograph was taken by my brother Mark (with permission) whilst on holiday in Vietnam.’
