Sweet Cheeks Muscat Testalonga, organic, natural, orange wine, aromatic Muscat variety. Rich aromas of orange, russet apple, husk, spice, honey and savoury undertones. The colour is deep and finish is long and satisfying. A lovely wine from the ever larger Craig Hawkins' stable.

Craig Hawkins is a young winemaker based in the Swartland, South Africa, where he rents about 11ha of vineyard. Having travelled extensively throughout Europe, and then worked as wine maker for Lammershoek, he now makes makes a huge variety of different wines under his own Testalonga label. Each vintage is experimental and we think they're getting better each year. These are beautiful natural hand-crafted wines from low yielding vines, wild ferments and nothing added except a little SO2 at bottling in some but not all the wines.

  1. How good is this wine?

    AA Bill20/02/2018

    This is bright and fresh with some delicate florals and a little grip and structure from the skin contact but it is still lithe and pretty. Not too out there
