Testalonga El Bandito Lekker 2022 Magnum
🍾 El Bandito Lekker
🖼️ Swartland, South Africa
🍇 Chenin Blanc
🛁 The grapes come from the vineyard of a cousin of Carla's mother's and was almost being uprooted, when it was decided to keep it almost as a game to see what would come of it. We are in Elands Bay, pergola vines planted in 1998 and always grown organically, with plenty of annual sunshine and a beautiful breeze coming off the ocean. Fermentation in barrels not of very first passage and ageing for 6 months. Only in Magnum.
👃🏻 White flowers and lots of citrus, returns of honey and brine, almost chalky mineral
👅 It goes off with agility and finesse, is savoury and fresh, slightly aromatic and persistent
👍🏻 Serving temperature 10°-12°.
😍 Lekker in Afrikaans (and also in Norwegian?!) means Cool
