Craig Hawkins über seinen Baby Bandito Follow your Dreams:
Baby Bandito is a project we started in 2015. We wanted to work with vineyards that deliver wines that can be drunk young yet still “over deliver” in quality one would expect from our most affordable wine. There was a heavy influence from street artists (the good ones, not just your drunk student defacing someone’s wall, unless it was good) in the labels and the idea of a “series” using different and bright colours. The names of the wines come from expressions that we use as if giving encouragement to a child. “Follow your Dreams” is a quote made famous by the street artist, Banksy, who says “All art is stolen” so we stole his quote. The photograph was taken by my brother Mark (with permission) whilst on holiday in Vietnam.
VINIFICATION: Hand harvested and 100% whole bunch fermented. The wine does not do carbonic maceration but rather is crushed before going into tank for 8 days of fermentation and then pressed off into two old 3500L Foudre. The later stages of the 2020 harvest we had quite a lot of heat, so we needed to harvest this before the major heatwave to retain its natural acidity. No yeast (or other) inoculation or additives apart from a small amount of SO2 shortly before bottling. 100% malolactic fermentation. A light clarifying filtration was done but the wine was not fined.
