About The Wine
Phenomenal Chenin Blanc, sourced from a 50 year-old organic vineyard, and macerated on skins for 12 days (actually a little less than previous releases).
Heady aromatic mix of spice, citrus fruits, some minerality even, then the palate displays power and weight rather than just the backdoor bitterness of some skin contact white wines.
A wine for a big-arse glass when you have time on your hands to savour something different.
Craig and Carla Hawkins launched Testalonga in the north of Swartland, South Africa in 2008.
They are part of a revolutionary ground swell taking place in South African wine, where traditions are being challenged and brave new territory is being explored. The painfully small amount of wine that this duo produces gets snapped up in short order the world over. Known for their striking intensity and nervy energy, Craig and Carla's wines are on the cutting edge of the natural wine movement in their country.
