PRODUCER: The wines of TESTALONGA defy convention in a lot of ways. Craig and Carla Hawkins have never been accused of being “followers” and their wines represent the avant-garde of South African wine. The TESTALONGA wines in some ways have come a long way since the first vintage, and in other ways they remain steadfastly true to the principles upon which the project was established 12 years ago. In our opinion they are one of the leaders in natural wine production in South Africa.
WINEMAKING: Organic Colombard grapes were hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Bottled before fermentation finished to create fizz (ancestral method winemaking technique) and disgorged 10 months later. No filtration, fining or added sulphur.
TASTING NOTES: This is a complex and traditional sparkling Colombard. It is aromatic and laser-bright, like lemonade for grown-ups. A fresh, bright Pet-Nat with a taste reminiscent of the freshest apples and peaches, low in alcohol.
