Baby Bandito is part of the Testalonga project where lively, young and unpretentious wines are being produced by winemaker Craig Hawkins. Hawkins is native to South Africa, but traveled all over the world to learn how to make wine. From Portugal to Austria, he made sure to surround himself with recognized mentors such as Domaine Matassa and Stephane Ogier.

Cinsault is often a blending agent, but when used as a single varietal, beautiful aromas of fresh strawberries, cherries and licorice explode from the glass. On the palate, it’s juicy, flowy, and supported by  structured tannins and fresh acidity. Don’t let the colour fool you - this is dynamite.
