Testalonga, El Bandito The Dark Side Syrah



Quick Overview

Dark and brooding. Red and black berries and cherries, a touch of reduction and some earthiness with hints of leather and herbs on the nose while the palate shows pure fruit, fresh acidity and firm tannins before a particularly savoury finish. A singular wine which will only benefit from some extra time in bottle.



Testalonga The Dark Side Syrah is a new wine in the Testalonga stable of natural wines. Craig Hawkins is developing his private vineyard holdings and his range of grape varieties. The Dark Side (suitably labelled in cool bottle!) is pure Syrah but not as you would expect in South Africa. Craig uses the wild yeasts and lees to add minerality and texture to a wine of poise and freshness. It has classic dark fruits and spice, what you expect from Syrah but its acidity and backbone add something extra.
