THE WOLFTRAP RED
Franschhoek Valley, South Africa
66% Syrah, 32% Mourvedre, 2% Viognier
The Wolftrap is a spicy, aromatic, red blend that has been French oak matured. The name is a tribute to the pioneers who in the early days of the Cape erected a wolf trap at Boekenhoutskloof. To date, no wolf either real or mystical has been seen in the valley.
Wine Spectator – “A soft, friendly style, with a lightly toasty shell around a core of gentle plum, white pepper and melted red licorice notes. The fruit lingers well. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now.”
Assorted black-fruit, violets and a hint of oak lends to a smooth savory palate with a pepper finish. Soft tannins with lingering flavors makes for easy drinking.
