Part of the exciting new wave of winemakers in South Africa, winemaker/founder Jurgen Gouws' founded Intellego in 2009. Intellego places heavy emphasis on organic, sustainable processes in the vineyard to yield optimal soil conditions that nurture the vines for today and beyond. There is minimal intervention during the winemaking process. The wines are therefore a celebration of the hard work done in the vineyard.
This is how the winery describes this wine - "“Halagasha” is the Xhosa term which this South Africa tribe use when celebrating the score of a soccer goal. Pinotage is a celebration of what we can achieve with this local variety in South Africa and Halagasha is just one of many examples of this diverse style. Whole bunch fermented under semi-carbonic conditions for 8 days in stainless steel tanks. Aged for 5 months in 225L barrels after which it spends 4 weeks in stainless steel tanks before bottling."
