TESTALONGA El Bandito Monkey Gone To Heaven Mourvedre 2021


TERROIR: Decomposed Granite, South East facing, 150masl

VITICULTURE: Bush vines planted in the 2001 and organically farmed, they are situated on slightly more clay rich “Koffie Klipp” soils of the Abbotsdale region on the foot slopes of the Paardeberg, this is a 1ha block we share with good friend and winemaker Jurgen Gouws who farms the block.

GRAPE: 100% Mourvedre

YIELDS: 20hl/ha

VINIFICATION: Hand-harvested, 100% whole bunch fermented for 9 days in open tanks, where it is then pressed and aged in three 500L French barrel. No yeast added, ambient fermentation. 100% malolactic fermentation (mlf bacteria not added). Unfined and a light clarifying filtration was done. We do feel this vineyard is still feeling the effects of the preceding years tougher vintages, but are extremely happy with the resulting fruit clarity on this wine.
