Testalonga Baby Bandito Chin Up Cinsault, full of character with juicy red cherry, liquorice and strawberry and just a very subtle hint of white pepper. Low alcohol at 11.5% and delicate in colour, yet still complex enough to stand up to a spiced Thai salad I ate while drinking this Cinsault. Very natural in taste and easy drinking. Would also be delicious chilled.
Planted in 1981, bush vine (un-trellised and dryland), farmed organically. This is a 3ha block on the farm of Rick Mcgrindle. It yields large but delicate grapes with thin skins of a pale complexion. However in 2018 due to the extreme drought we had the crop was tiny and berries also smaller than usual which meant vinification needed to be more gentle than ever.' The final wine is excellent quality with great concentration and freshness. 750ml Bottle
