After travelling extensively in Portugal and Austria learning his craft Craig Hawkins returned to South Africa and became the winemaker at top Swartland estate Lammershoek. Craig now makes his own wines from various small, organic vineyard sites in Swartland and makes his wine naturally, with as little intervention as possible.

Their "Mangaliza" (named after a breed of Hungarian pigs that look like sheep), is made from a small parcel of vines dedicated to the Hungarian Harslevelu grape in Testalonga's Swartland estate. It is made with the native Hungarian grape Harslevelu, which is usually found in Tokaji wines. A rare find if ever there was one, these bottles get snapped up in no time.

Very clean nose with a delicious palate reflecting varietal flavours of apple and almonds. Remarkably crisp with great minerality and citrus character, texture and plenty of depth. This is simply delicious. Manual harvested, whole bunch pressed, fermented and aged old French oak barrels with indigenous yeast. Undergoes malolactic fermentation. Unfined and unfiltered.
