Testalonga El Bandito Mangaliza 2023


Note from Craig: “The wine is born from my experiences in working close the Hungarian border in Austria. Here I came into contact with the grape Harslevelü, which is beautifully fragrant and has a great natural oily texture together with decent acidities. I came back to South Africa and work with a tiny 0.5 ha vineyard, (which is next to the Sweet Cheeks and Cortez vineyard). Whilst in Hungary I also discovered the Hungarian “Sheep Pig” locally called Mangalitsa, I like pigs and particularly pigs that look like sheep, so I called the wine Mangaliza in homage to the sheep pig. The photo was taken by myself of a field mouse which I rescued from my dogs, it lived to fight another day.
