DETAILS

Jurgen worked with the great Eben Sadie for a vintage in Spain (at Terroir Al Limit in Priorat) and also South Africa, with further stints in France (at Matassa with Tom Lubbe, Stephane Ogier, Roc d’Anglade) and in New Zealand and Russia (where Juregn made the premium wines for a big winery during 2008 and 2009). Subsequently, he worked for 4 years at Lammershoek with Craig Hawkins, but since January 2015 has solely concentrated on Intellego and renting vineyards for his project.

The vineyards for the Chenin are in Abbotsdale, Swartland, where the climate still has a residual Atlantic influence. The Intellego parcel is situated on a hill (200 metres altitude, east facing) and receives a constant breeze in the afternoon but gets lower rainfall than the other parcels.

The 34-year-old dryland Chenin Blanc bush vines grow on soil with a very sandy top layer followed by gravel and clay deeper down. Farming is sustainable and organic with cow manures and cover crops planted. Sprays are copper and sulphur.

Intellego Chenin is whole-bunch pressed in a pneumatic batch press, pumped straight from the press to the barrels (225L) without settling where it ferments naturally and ages for 11 months in 225 litre barriques aged 9 years old. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally and the wine is bottled without barrel, filtration or fining. This is a Chenin of crunches and angles. Once carafe or served in a good glass the wine unwinds without ever losing its tension.
