This is the wine that defines Jurgen and Intellego. Starting in 2019 Jurgen has focused this wine on the granitic material of the Paardeberg, hillside, bushvines plantings that really showcase the site and a lower pH than the old vine site in the nothern Swartland that he would add previously. He had problems getting the wine dry in previous vintages and it was due to the fermentation halting because of the old vine site. He refused to push it through with any additions, so in maintaining the integrity of the wine, he set that vineyard aside for a different wine.
The fruit was hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed with full solids to old 500L French puncheons, where it fermented spontaneously. The wine sits sur lie, adding texture but also retaining tension to the final wine, and ages on the gross lees for 11 months. The wine was racked from barrel to tank and bottled without fining or filtration and only a small amount of SO2 added at bottling.
