Testalonga Baby Bandito Stay Brave
Packed full of citrus and ginger with amazing complexity and roundness to it from the delicate oak treatment and malolactic fermentation. It has an underlying minerality on the palate but balanced with acidity and fruit. It really is a joy to drink, and you can tell how much care and attention has been put into the winemaking.
The grapes are fermented for 11 days whilst macerating with their skins before being pressed into old oak barrels. Nothing is added apart from a tiny amount of sulphur before bottling.
