Testalonga Skin Chenin


Testalonga was started in 2008 by Craig and Carla Hawkins. Dubbed the “Natural Wine King of South Africa”, Craig produces wines with minimal intervention from his winery in Swartland.

In the words of the importer – “This was the first wine Craig made for this project back in 2008. After many years of experimentation, he feels he has found a methodology that shows the delicacy of Chenin in a skin fermented wine. The bush-vines were planted in 1972. The vines weren’t suckered which helped retain leaves, resulting in grapes with a better balance of acidity, alcohol, and phenolics. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in open top tank for 8 days. The wine is then pressed off into neutral barrique and puncheon for élevage.”
