El Bandito Skin Chenin Blanc 2018 - Temple Cellars

Origin: Testalonga Winery, South Africa

Vol: 750ml

ABV: 10.5%

'From a 1972 Chenin Blanc vineyard. Eight days of skin contact. A compelling nose of dried flowers, herbs, citrus and stone fruit to go with a certain grapiness. Great fruit concentration, bright acidity and some nice phenolic grip, the finish long and savoury. Alcohol: 10.5%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 93/100

Winemakers' comments:
'The 2018 Skin contact is our proudest wine being the first wine we bottled and made in 2008. The wine has come a long way and each year provides us with new flavours. We have toned down on the extraction and have now stopped experimenting as much as we used to. We have found our sweet spot that we enjoy for Skin Macerated whites and enjoy the balance we get from these flavours. This was the shortest skin contact that we have ever given to this wine and we really feel the wine is now developing into something that is entirely on its own'. – Craig & Carla Hawkins
