El Bandito Cortez
This special Chenin Blanc by Craig Hawkins is electric! It has a beautiful bright golden colour with aromas of wild honey and freshly baked bread which contrast with its dry, racy acidity and long finish. There is plenty of depth and complexity in this organic white. South Africa really is showing off at the moment with the amount of incredible wines available.
