El Bandito I am the Ninja Pet Nat - Testalonga
A bright and creamy and very much sought-after Pet Nat from the guys at Testalonga in South Africa’s Swartland region. Craig and Carla Hawkins do some very special things with old vine European grapes, and this soft, dry fizz is made with 100% Chenin Blanc. The grapes are processed using the ancestral method wherein the wine is bottled mid-fermentation, trapping CO2 to create light, fine bubbles that are a gentle alternative to Champagne and other traditional method sparkling wines.
With a real zippy citrus energy to it and a lower ABV, this is a playful and refreshing wine, the perfect welcome drink to a dinner party, to show your guests what you’re made of.
This bottle comes with our usual Pet-Nat warning: CHILL AS HARD AS YOU CAN AND OPEN VERY CAREFULLY.
Started by Craig and Carla Hawkins in 2008, South African brand Testalonga strives to produce wine from grapes and nothing else. Their wines are made as naturally and with as little intervention as possible from grapes grown on various small, organic vineyard sites in the Swartland region. Organic viticulture is uncommon in this area, but Craig is very clear on his approach: to create wines his own way, for his own satisfaction and to his own taste. He has been appreciated by experts across the globe for his ability to create handcrafted wines abundant in authenticity and with great consistency.
The product is wine that sits outside of the mainstream and oozes personality. The Baby Bandito range,(Keep on Punching, Stay Brave, Follow Your Dreams, and Chin Up) take their names from words of encouragement you might give to a child, and Testalonga wines are full of these quirks and stories. These wines are real crowd pleasers loved far and wide for their rich flavour and unique visual presence.
