Testalonga Mielie Green 2022 - Testalonga
A new cuvée from Testalonga for 2022, Mielie is a green Chenin that takes its name from the Afrikaans word for corn. This bright Chenin is a real anywhere and everywhere white wine, with minerality and zingy acidity.
"A Mielie is a corncob in Afrikaans, a staple food in South Africa. Our daughter's name is Camilla, which became Milly, which became Mielie. Long live the Mielie"
This is the perfect accompaniment to salty seafood and snacks.
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.
