This is a grown up’s version of a fruit squash, with tantalising flavours of raspberries, red currant, lemon grass & pink peppercorn that swill around your mouth.

The Syrah and Mourvedre in the blend were whole bunch pressed and fermented for 5 months in old barriques, the cinsault fermented for just just 4 days before maturation in barriques.

The wine has a very light red colour due to the short ferment of Cinsaut on the skins. The Cinsaut brings this buzz of awesome flavours to the party while the Syrah and Mourvedre contribute to the freshness and structure. In the Words of Jurgen himself, 'this wine is fun in its purest form'.

Winemaker Notes:
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.

Intellego’s true passion is the real work that happens in the vineyard with a hands-on approach, understanding seasonal influences and adjusting based on constant observation of the terroir.

A big aim is to create optimum soil conditions through organic practises where the vines will be nurtured for an indefinite period of time, creating conditions for each block to have their own individual character. We grow grapes in an environment that is beneficial to the plant and its roots in this Mediterranean like climate.

Mother nature has given us the opportunity to discover its true potential and by establishing vineyards on favourable sites we can express ourselves and at the same time contribute to a healthier environment.
