In the cellar
The Cinsaut fermented for 4 days on the skins – whole bunch. The Syrah and Mourvedre direct press and aged in barrel for 5 months. The wine was blended after 5 months and another 5 weeks in stainless steel before being bottled.

Christian Eedes: Almost luminous pink in colour. Engaging aromatics of cherry, watermelon, candyfloss, blood orange and herbs while the palate is juicy and fresh with a gently savoury finish. As smashable (yes, that word) as ever. 90pt.

“Our philosophy remains minimal intervention during the winemaking process and the wines are a celebration of the hard work done in the vineyard. For us it is intuitive winegrowing, an evolution through experimentation on small pockets of land selected in the Swartland Appellation.”
― Jurgen Gouws

Intellego Wines owner and winemaker, Jurgen Gouws, is originally from the Eastern Cape but now calls the Swartland home. He has worked with some of that area’s most celebrated names (Eben Sadie, Tom Lubbe, Craig Hawkins). Jurgen’s cartoonishly idiosyncratic labels are one of his hallmarks.

Jurgen favours a natural approach – think organic farming and minimal intervention (no yeast, acid, enzymes or fining; limited sulphur and filtration) in the cellar. He currently makes the wines at Annex Kloof on the Paardeberg.
