The Wolftrap Red
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: When the farm was founded, the Franschhoek valley was far wilder than it is today – as the wolf trap they 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 they created this wine to remind us of the mysteries and legends of days gone by.
WINEMAKING: 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.
TASTING NOTES: The Wolftrap is a spicy, aromatic red blend that has been matured in French oak. Assorted black- fruit, violets and a hint of oak leads to a smooth savoury palate with a peppery finish. Soft tannins with lingering flavours make for easy drinking.
