'Firm, intense and quite tannic, this grippy Shiraz needs more time in bottle to soften, but has impressive intensity, with layers of tapenade, dried blood and granitic tannins supported by racy acidity. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'Nothing too overt about the nose with subtle notes of black berries, fynbos, lavender and pepper while the palate shows good fruit concentration, bright acidity and crunchy tannins, the finish long and dry – an elegant take on the variety due in part to the granitic soils of the vineyard in question.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

'A Shiraz reflecting the elegance of granitic soils. It invites with subtle floral aromas and spice and earthy dried fynbos of the warm mountain slopes. Complex red and dark fruit flavours are complimented with irony beetroot, earthy rhubarb and black olives. The palate is elegant with a medium body but with big structural presence of firm, rustic tannins. A wine with great bottle-aging possibility. Decanting recommended young.' – 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.’
