Intellego is Latin for 'I understand', and is the brainchild of laid back surfer/winemaker Jurgen Gouws. Founded in 2009, Intellego has been a leader in the South African wine scene for stripped back wines that express fruit and soil in a vibrant and slightly wild way. Jurgen worked with famed winemaker Craig Hawkins (of Testalonga fame) prior to launching his own label, and took much inspiration from him. The philosophy at Intellego is of minimal intervention during the winemaking process, intuitive winegrowing and an evolution through experimentation on small pockets of land selected in the Swartland Appellation. 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. Located in the Paardeberg, in the heart of the Swartland, 45 minutes from Cape Town, Gouws uses fruit from multiple vineyard sites to craft a range of digestible and vital wines, far from the South African norm. Mostly Chenin Blanc, with a little splash of Chardonnay, this is made in a very lovely style. A few days of skin contact contribute to the exotic aromatics - dried flowers, peach and nectarine. Some grapefruit, orange blossom and salt as well. Juicy and elegant, very easy to drink.
