2019 Testalonga ‘Keep on Punching’ Chenin Blanc
Craig Hawkins, along with his one-time mentor Eben Sadie, is among the most influential winemakers in South Africa. Not that most South Africans would feel the same way. Most consider his wines to be too out there. It’s a very conservative region after all. His wines are often banned from being exported. They don’t fit in the box. They’re way too good for that.
Having no skin contact, this is the brightest and the freshest of Testalonga’s ‘Baby Bandito’ range. Slightly cloudy, citrusy and dry as a bone, this is the perfect intro to the more weird and wonderful wines in the stable.
