Almost everything about the company Testalonga is unique. Vintner Craig Hawkins has rigidly stuck to his organic wine-making roots after numerous rejections from confused South African counterparts after learning first-hand from many different European wine producers. He settled in the Swartland, South Africa and decided to create his vineyard, and has since been producing bold, near-biodynamic wines that are completely out of the box. His El Bandito and Baby Bandito series are named with aspiration phrases - such as 'Be Brave' - and feature stylised, artistic photographs taken by his brother.
The Lords of Dogtown is made with 100% Chenin Blanc and has aromas of citrus, peach, dried herbs and ginger. It has a lively acidity with a hint of spiciness on the finish.
