The “Skin” 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. We have reduced the length of time we leave the wines on the skin as the goal here is to find elegance and focus within this particular style which we love.

Testalonga was set up by Craig and Carla Hawkins in 2008 and they were the first of the Swartland Revolution crew to start their own vineyard project back in 2015, when they moved to a farm called Banditskloof. With the sole aim to make wines from grapes and nothing else, they farm organically and/or biodynamically.
