Notes: A spicy & rich South African red blend from the esteemed Boekenhoutskloof winery. The Wolftrap Red is the celebrated Boekenhoutskloof entry level label & is a perennially reliable performer & wonderful value for money. While the blend of grapes varies a bit from one year to the next Syrah is always the predominant grape followed by Mourvèdre & a splash of Viognier. It leads with intense dark fruit aromas of blackberries, blueberries & a whiff of violets, while on the palate a hint of liquorice & sweet tobacco add to the full, dark berry flavours. With a really silky texture it’s very smooth & well balanced. A classic ‘Rhône style’ red blend that reliably over delivers for the price.

 

Producer Info: Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776 & is now run by legendary South African winemaker Mark Kent. The brilliance of its wines has never been in doubt. A winemaker whose ethos is rooted in French non-interventionist thinking, natural yeasts, minimal racking & impeccable vineyard work, Mark’s meaty, complex Syrah is perhaps his most famous wine, but his other wines are equally remarkable like the powerful Cabernet, the sensational & world renowned Chocolate Block & the quite frankly superb value Wolftrap Red & White. These wines can be hard to find & quantities of the top wines are tiny.
