Swerwer Red 2018 – An impressive 95-pointer

A scintillating palate with lovely fruit purity and zip to go with fine yet grippy tannins.’ – Christian Eedes, 95/100

Right from the very first sip, this wine is immediately delicious but, unlike many medium-bodied and fresher styles, the 2018 Swerwer Red is up a gear with more flesh and seriousness to its structure.

Jasper Wickens, previously the assistant winemaker at Badenhorst Family Wines, has built up a following in a very short time – and for good reason. This Young Gun has a deft touch and his wines are always measured, typically ‘Swartland’ and, most of all, delicious! The 2018 Swerwer Red is a unique blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Tinta Barocca with the Tinta adding grippy tannins and balancing its juiciness – very impressive indeed. It offers both great drinking pleasure now while having the stuffing to evolve beautifully.

 

Swerwer Red 2018

 

Alongside the red blend, Jasper has also released 2 other very limited wines. His excellent 2018 Swerwer Chenin Blanc is a typical Swartland white with concentrated fruit and a saline undertow that is balanced by fresh, zippy acidity. The 2018 Swerwer Rooi-Groen Sémillon is intriguing and joins a small band of Sémillon Gris bottlings in SA. It’s a unique wine with a touch of tannin and savoury, yet exciting flavours. If you love this style, it is a must!
