The Wolftrap Red
The Wolftrap Red is an intense red colour with a purple rim, it has a spicy profile with ripe black fruit and violets.
The Wolftrap Red is smooth and rich on the palate with soft tannins, good density and a hint of oak, a well balanced, unpretentious wine made for easy drinking
Based in Franschhoek, the estate has gained cult status because of the exquisitely balanced wines that reflect the varieties used as much as the soil they come from.
The reputation of the winery is built as much on the outstanding value of the everyday wines as it is on the quality of the flagship bottles.
The top wines from Boekenhoutskloof are made in tiny quantities and have a fanatical following with canny customers buying early to avoid disappointment
When the farm was founded, the Franschhoek valley was far wilder than it is today – as the wolf trap we once discovered goes to show.
Today, the mountains are still alive with indigenous animals, including the majestic leopard. No evidence of wolves has ever been found though, so we created this wine to remind us of the mysteries and legends of days gone by.
The Wolftrap is a rich, deep red blend that includes Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Viognier.
Winemakers comments: Grapes for this increasingly popular blend are sourced from selected vineyards in the Swartland. Small berries from dry land vines provide intense spicy flavours with integrated, balanced tannins.
A slight hint of perfume from the Viognier adds to the harmony. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak prior to blending and bottling. http://www.boekenhoutskloof.co.za/wolftrap
TASTING NOTES: Ripe blackberries and spicy pepper flavours from the Syrah driving this blend are met with a soft and supple palate.
Good density with lingering flavours and a hint of oak. Soft, supple tannins makes for early, easy drinking.
