Testalonga El Bandito Cortez Chenin
Country: South Africa
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
Craig Hawkins is one of the stars of South African natural winemaking who together with Johan Meyer (Mother Rock) and Jurgen Gouws (Intellego) has built a movement from the ground up in Swartland.
Craig's top Chenin Blanc, Cortez is from a single plot of organically farmed old vines. It's subtle with a chalky mineral textured flavours of bread dough, apples and pears, tangerine peel, dried herbs and hay.
