Where and How?
This is Pinotage planted on decomposed granite on a south western slope at 200m altitude. Vines were planted in 2001.
Harvested by hand, the bunches then underwent semi-carbonic natural fermentation for eight days. The wine was aged in neutral 225L French oak barrels (12 years old) for five months and four weeks in stainless steel.
The Winemaker: Intellego
Jurgen Gouws is a winemaker on a mission to craft elegant wines from a hot place. His wines express distinct harmony and freshness — something that is not easy to achieve in a region that suffers greatly from drought. By farming sensitively with the soil and climate in mind, and by listening to his vineyards and to his soils, he is able to ensure that his vines are as healthy as possible. It is the tremendous effort he invests in his farming practices that ensures his vines are healthy, producing both quality and quantity when harvest time arrives.
Growing up surrounded by citrus farming, Jurgen knew from a young age that he wanted to work in agriculture; with the land. But he was looking for something more than just great lemons, and he discovered this in farming and making wine.
