‘A delicious red blend made up of Cinsault, Grenache and Tinta Barocca, this is a cool crystalline red wine that marries these traditional Swartland cultivars sourced from mostly gnarled old vines grown on deep decomposed granitic soils. With the grace and freshness of the Cinsault and Grenache, this blend is delightfully bright, elegant, and vibrant with a distinct cool sense of purity and precision. Initially savoury and sightly meaty on the nose when opened, the aromatics soon blossom to reveal perfumed notes of pressed violets, lavender, bramble berries and wild strawberry with an inviting underlying earthy fynbos and sweet garrigue spice. But this cool, elegant 2021 vintage is ultimately all about freshness, vitality and mid-palate tension, with the Tinta Barocca adding extra depth and tannic structure without compromising the wine’s overall balance and finesse. This is certainly a mouth-watering creation that offers enticing drinkability and red meat friendly food accompaniment. Drink on release and over the next 5 to 8+ years.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 94+/100

‘The sort of red the Swartland does better than any other region in South Africa, this juicy, refreshing, stony blend combines Cinsault with 40% Grenache and 14% Tinta Barocca. Focused, grippy and spicy, with aniseed, raspberry and red cherry fruit and a twist of white pepper. 2022-26’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2022, 91/100

‘42% Cinsault, 42% Grenache and 16% Tinta Barocca. Pretty aromatics of cranberry, raspberry and a hint of black cherry plus floral perfume and fynbos. The palate is light-bodied with clean fruit, vibrant acidity and powdery tannins, the finish nicely dry.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

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.’
