Craig Hawkins über seinen El Bandito I Wish I Was a Ninja:
"We are extremely happy with this wine, as it is quickly becoming one of our mainstay wines. The good balance of acid, sugar and bubbles is now a consistent quality. The name came about whilst we were bottling the wine in harvest and we got onto the topic of Ninjas. The photo was taken by Craig in the pool of good friend Paul Jordaan, during one of many Swartland “Braais”. I knew then that the photo would be my label as I think it captures the essence of what I want the people to feel like when they drink this wine."
VINIFICATION: Hand-harvested then fermented in fibreglass tanks at a temperature of 8 degrees. It was racked 9 times during fermentation to remove the sediment. At a sugar of 55g/l it was bottled under crown cap where it was left to finish fermentation and build up a natural pressure of carbon dioxide. After 10 months the bottles were riddled and disgorged and topped with the same wine (from other decanted bottles) and crown capped again. No SO2 was ever added to the wine and neither was any settling or fining agent.
