The Wolftrap

Red Blend

2014

Cape of Good Hope, South Africa

82% Syrah
16% Mourvedre
2% Viognier

“This svelte lady is the figurehead of Boekenhoutskloof. She is an adaptation of an early silver hallmark of the Cape of Good Hope and she carries the dove of peace and hope. Guarding over Boekenhoutskloof, she represents intrinsic quality, which we prize above all else.”

A Wine Drawn from Legend

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.

*** 1/2

ripe blackberries, plums, and spicy pepper flavors from the Syrah driving this blend are met with a soft and supple palate. good density with lingering flavors and a hint of oak and a subtle smokiness on the nose and the palate.
