'Single-variety Touriga Nacional can be a bit of an oddity but this is characterful and compelling. Red and black berries, fynbos, olive, spice, some meatiness and a hint of reduction on the nose while the palate has good depth of fruit, a nice line of acidity and nicely firm tannins.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Touriga Nacional sometimes seems to show more tannin and grip in South Africa than it does in its native Portugal. This is a case in point, with notes of Angostura bitters, orange zest and blackberry fruit, a funky, earthy top note and a meaty, dry finish. Drink 2022-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'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

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.’
