'Cinsault and Grenache-dominated with 14% Tinta Barocca, this is a characterful good-value Swartland red that was partially fermented with whole bunches before ageing in larger oak. Subtly reduced, it has red cherry and bramble fruit, gritty tannins and lots of supporting acidity. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'Partial whole-bunch fermentation before maturation in larger oak. The nose shows attractive notes of red berries, fynbos and spice with an undertone of earthiness while the palate is medium bodied and lithe – pure fruit, fresh acidity and powdery tannins make for particularly cheerful drinking.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

'This is a wine with natural purity and elegance. It is unbelievably drinkable thanks to Cinsault and Grenache contributing to more than 85% of the blend. Delicate rose petal aromas leads to fresh fruit and earthy fynbos. The palate is loaded with juicy red and dark berry fruit and an earthy edge of pomegranate and black tea. Tinta Barocca completes this classic Swartland blend by adding darker and earthy tones and a fleshy mouthfeel. It also provides firm structure with gripping tannins, finishing fresh and tight. A unique and charismatic wine, quite pleasurable in its youth, but worth the wait with further aging.' – Jasper 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.’
