Baby Bandito Chin Up Cinsault 2021 - Testalonga
✔ 10% When purchasing 12 or more bottles
A light, soft red from Testalonga. A very relaxed Cinsault, with strawberries, red apple notes and soft berries. This is all balanced by a slightly earthy finish and light tannins. Could easily be served chilled, and would be perfect with or without food, it will disappear quickly in your glass. So refreshing!
Craig and Carla seek purity, precision and brightness in their wines and only work with vineyards that can produce high-quality grapes (with relatively low pH) ensuring that there is minimal need for intervention in the cellar. A herbicide- and pesticide-free approach in the vineyard is essential to their goals. They work with cover crops rather than chemical fertilisers in the winter to ensure moisture retention and general soil health in the dry Swartland climate. Expressing vineyard is key, so all the wines are a single variety from a single site.
In the cellar there is no yeast, enzymes or acid added. The red wines are fermented whole-bunch and usually pressed after 3-4 days. A minuscule amount of SO2 may be added before bottling.
