Given mighty oak trees grow from tiny acorns it's unsurprising that Swartland winemaker Jurgen decided to see what happened when he planted vines in oak leaf soil. Surely, he thought, some of that magnificent influence would rub off on the grapes. Just as growing up around brainy people can help a kid be clever.


His Chenin Blanc was just the thing. Plenty of fruit flavour, adaptable, and not too fussy. The perfect varietal with which to test a theory. Sure enough, the ensuant wine was mighty good, and happily it didn't taste like acorns. In fact, it was brimming with crunchy, green apple flavours. Really quite a smart result.


Intellego Wines have focused on sourcing grapes from different pockets in the Swartland and farming some as well. They have worked in close collaboration with the growers which is essential to growing fruit that are expressive of the region. Jurgen Gouws is well known for producing wines that pure elegance having worked on many vintages in the past. Making the Chenin Blanc skin contact is a challenge in itself but the expressiveness of these wines gives him much pleasure in exploring and knowing there are more to come in future.
