Keep on Punching Testalonga Chenin Blanc

26.00

Keep On Punching is Swartland Chenin, but not in the conventional sense. No buttery oak, this is all 100% stainless steel tank to keep that citrus twang just as clean as a whistle.  Stylistically this wine fits more closely with the Chenins of the Loire valley – the fruit is apple and pear with some nice zippy white peach.  The grapes come from old bush vines that yield small clusters of grapes with great concentration and acidity year on year.  Craig’s wines have a keen following, and for good reason.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.If you like a bit of skin contact (& don’t we all), try this!
