Orange - Chenin Blanc

Testalonga El Bandito "Skin" Chenin Blanc 2021

Where - Swartland, South Africa
What - Chenin Blanc
Body - Medium
Style - Contemplate

Hand harvested. Destemmed 100% into 1500L open fermenters. Fermented for 12 days on the skins before being pressed into one 3000L Foudre. Full malolactic fermentation takes place. Bottled after 11 months in Foudre. A very light clarifying filtration was done, not fined.  This seems to be the sweet spot for Testalonga and their skin contact wines.
