'The 2020 vintage resulted in generously rich chenin blancs. An invite of white and yellow stone fruit and herbal notes to a broad palate, textured with peach, apple and pear, quince with a slightly savoury touch. A soft acidity helps flavours to focus and layer, but still finishes fresh and crisp. It is a well-balanced wine, to be enjoyed fresh with food, although it can benefit with aging and evolve into something quite complex and special.' – Jasper Wickens, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Jasper and Franziska Wickens' beautiful Paardeberg farm is producing some of the best whites in the Swartland right now, demonstrated by the quality of this stunning, naturally fermented Chenin Blanc. Taut, textured and saline, it's a wine that's compact, long and focused, with pear and citrus fruit, savoury, mealy tannins and remarkable length. Drink 2021-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'Beguiling dried peach, earthy ripeness reflecting Swartland generosity permeate & linger on 2019, but there’s also purity & restraint led by a fine thread of acidity. Achieves satisfying combination of substance & lightness. Bunch pressed, older oak, unfined.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

Producer information 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! He established Swerwer in 2012 and the name, he says, ‘describes the lives of many young winemakers chasing the vintages across the globe.’
