Tasting Notes

The Chenin vines for the El Bandito Cortez were planted in 1972, dryland bush vine (un-trellised), farmed organically. The vineyard is a special one as it has been farmed organically since 2001 and every year, good or bad, gives a tension sometimes not as present in their other wines. This is possibly due to the high percentage of quartz/silica in the soil. Testalonga El Bandito Cortez is subtle, fresh and pure. Fine, lacy acid line with a moreish, chalky texture. It pairs perfectly with freshwater fish or calamari.
