Testalonga El Bandito Lords of Dogtown Chenin Blanc 2015

Rad.

Lords of Dogtown 2015 is a new Chenin Blanc from Craig Hawkins of Testalonga which for now is only available in South Africa and Japan.

The first vintage from a previously derelict Swartland vineyard, it was whole-bunch pressed before maturation in old oak. It’s got great aromatics: citrus, peach and apricot, dried herbs and ginger. The palate, meanwhile, is light in body but extremely flavourful and there’s some pithiness on the finish which lends the wine form. It’s destined to have a special place in the range. Wine Cellar price: R235 a bottle.

#WinemagRating: 92/100.
