Testalonga Baby Bandito Stay Brave Chenin Blanc 2020
Craig and Carla of Testalonga have worked tirelessly with their commitment to organics, minimal intervention in the winery and producing interesting, new styles of wine, that they have become true punks of the South African wine scene. Their releases are always dynamic and brimming with electricity, some notes from importer Andrew Guard below...
From a 1961 Piketberg block on sandstone. Fermented and matured in a combination of foudre and stainless-steel tank. A very primary and engaging nose of white peach, apple and a hint of dried herbs. The palate has lovely fruit purity, bright acidity and a saline finish. Immensely enjoyable to drink – defies a score.
