The Halagasha is made from dry-grown, bush vine Pinotage from the Paardeberg.
It is fermented without de-stemming in a closed stainless steel tank (semi-carbonic) for eight days. It is then pressed to old 225L barrels for 5 months, and bottled after another month in stainless steel.
The resulting wine is perfumed, spicy and expressive on the nose. The palate is, like all of Jurgen’s wines, full of life and tension with juicy fruit, grape tannin and pleasing acidity. Super young, yes, but also absolutely delicious.
