Testalonga Baby Bandito Keep on Punching

A unique Chenin blanc from South africa. 

Baby Bandito Keep on Punching is as it says a punchy Chenin Blanc. The small clusters of grapes are full of concentrated juice with a high natural acidity. Flavours of peach, apple and herbs on the nose draw you in the glass. This is a great place to start if your looking to try organic natural wines. Craig Hawkins owner of Testalonga winery prides himself on making natural wines with quality over quantity. his wines are unfined and unfiltered made from just grapes nothing added.

 '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.' - Craig Hawkins.

What is Organic wine

What is Organic wine

Organic wine literally means the wine has been made from grapes which are farmed organically. This means no chemical fertilizers or herbisides have been used on the vineyard. 

Organic wine is defined as wine made with grapes farmed organically but this is just the first phase in organic wine making, the second phase invovles the fermentation and preservation process and this is also vital in definign organic wine. 

The defination of organic wine does vary country by country, in the US for example it is defined by the use or non use of perservatives such as sulphur but a seperate labeling system means a wine can be classed as Organic if the grapes are harvested from a 100% certifed farm even if sulphates are added at the winery. In the UK and Europe organic wine simply means that the grapes are farmed organically but to be certifed Organic the vineyards have to adopt specific practices throughout the winemaking process.
