We have been on a mission to find out about Harry and his washing line but it would seem he is a man of mystery and has eluded us for the moment! We can however tell you about the delicious wine named after him.
Intellego Wines focus on making terroir driven wines from the Swartland with a very hands on approach in the winery and vineyards. The wines of Intellego are made using organic methods but do not yet carry an official organic certification. Jurgen Gouws, the winemaker at Intellego, has worked in many countries including Spain, France, New Zealand, Russia and South Africa. Since January 2015 he has concentrated on producing and renting vineyards for his winemaking venture at Intellego in Swartland, South Africa.
The grapes for "The Story of Harry" Chenin Blanc are harvested manually and the grape must is then fermented by malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels using only indigenous yeasts. This gives the wine a soft, rounded and rich, almost buttery flavour. The wine is then matured in old French oak for seven months before being bottled with no filtration or fining.
