Intellego, Halagasha Pinotage (2020) Swartland, South Africa. Pinotage.

“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.

Using whole bunch fermentation under semi-carbonic conditions for 8 days in stainless steel tanks helps to bring out those candied bright flavours of strawberry, raspberry, vibrant cherry and cranberry. Whereas the 5 months ageing in large 225l barrels promotes a subtle hint of nutmeg spice and suede leather with a white pepper finish.
