2014 Testalonga El Bandito Skin Contact
Craig Hawkins is one of the most influential and certainly the most exciting winemakers of, not only South Africa, but the the New World. Producing wine in the Swartland in South Africa, he has helped to change the image of South African wine. This is Chenin Blanc - hand harvested from old bush vines planted at Lammershoek. This wine has depth and myriad complexity. I teases with exotic aromas and bright citrus at the same time and has an alluring perfume that fades and returns. Despite it's complexity it retains lovely finesse and has a very moreish finish. This would be a wonder at the table.
