Baby Bandito Follow Your Dreams
Blend: 100% Carignan
From: South Africa, Piketberg DO
By: Craig & Carla Hawkins @ Testalonga
A light and refreshing white from maverick South African winemaker Craig Hawkins, who is gaining a reputation for pushing the boundaries to produce unadulterated wines. Baby Bandito Follow your Dreams is a simple, fruity red created from Carignan grapes grown in the mountains of South Africa’s Swartland.
After travelling extensively around Portugal and Austria Craig Hawkins founded the Testalonga label. He makes his own wines from small vineyards around Swartland in South Africa. He likes to make his wines naturally and sustainably with minimal external input. The grapes for Baby Bandito are manually harvested and matured in French oak barrels. There is no filtration or fining and only a small addition of sulphur.
