'Deep, dark in colour with a purple rim. Rich floral aromas of violets and sweet oriental spice. Complex flavours of blueberry, plum and purple and black forest fruits and a soft but succulent acidity. It is elegantly weighty with a velvety density and a defined underlying structure. A wine that reveals the identity of Touriga Nacional with uncompromised character.' – Jasper Wickens, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Comparatively firm and severe for a Touriga Nacional – it reminds me more of a Tinta Barocca – this is spicy, intense and chewy, with lots of damson and bramble fruit, a meaty, charcuterie note, subtle wood and refreshing underlying acidity. Needs a plate of hearty food. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Engaging floral fragrance on vivid-hued 2019 matched by sweet, succulent fruit & balanced fresh acidity. Overall mouthwatering quality from vibrant tannin, light feel of 12.5% alcohol. Lunchtime red, can benefit from light chilling.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

'Ripe plums, blueberry, lavender, fynbos, earth and spice on the nose. The palate has lots of sweet, concentrated fruit to go with grippy, slightly coarse tannins – some will like it for how characterful it is while others might find it a bit too rustic.' – 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.’
