Details

Testalonga El Bandito Monkey Goes To Heaven, Craig Hawkins, Mourvedre, organic wine, whole bunch ferment. The grapes for this wine are from vineyards Craig started working with when he left Lammershoek (now fully organic), which he now shares. This wine has lively aromas of mint and pepper, with a concentrated palate balanced with freshness and grippy tannins. Another excellent wine from Craig Hawkins, that is perfect for BBQs.

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.
