'Richer, denser and broader than the straight Swerwer Chenin Blanc - although that may be partly a vintage thing - this is a concentrated, almost tannic white with impressive structure and palate depth. Serious and grippy, with granite freshness and notes of aniseed, lemon peel and wild herbs. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'The 2018 vintage followed the lowest anual rainfall recorded in the last couple of decades and considered another hot and dry one. The white wines were generally bolder with big textures. The Tiernes Chenin blanc displays herbal aromatics with dried fynbos, honey blossom and aniseed. The profile diverted slightly from its usual acidic, citrus fruit-direction but has rather concentrated and complex quince, white pear and golden delicious apple flavours. The textures are typically Swartland with lanolin and beeswax with a rigid structure. A soft acidity keeps the wine fresh with l inger ing flavours and a saline finish. This is a Chenin that would age execptionally well.' – JC Wickens, Winemaker

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.'.
