2020 Testalonga El Bandito Cortez
100% Chenin Blanc.
Dry, no skin maceration. The wine was fermented and aged in 500L old French foudre and a single 1500L stainless steel tank for six months, then blended together and placed back into wood and stainless steel. A complex nose showing dried herbs, pear, peach, apple and a hint of smoky reduction while the palate has lovely fruit purity and definition, electric acidity and a pithy finish. Beautifully poised and intense while being extraordinarily light-bodied.
