2018 Testalonga El Bandito Monkey Gone To Heaven



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, he has helped to change the image of South African wine.
100% Mourvedre From a vineyard planted in 2001. 100% whole-bunch fermented. Typically complex dark fruit, earth and oriental spice on the nose. The palate is juicy and substantial with a lushness and again a great vibrancy. The tannins have a nice Mourvedre firmness about them and support the wine beautifully, this is great drinking and really shows this wonderful but sometime cantankerous grape variety in the best light. Fluid and long in the mouth.
