The Wolftrap White 2021

The Wolftrap range of wines are a tribute to the pioneers who in the early days ventured into the Cape wilderness and erected a wolf trap on Boekenhoutskloof. To date, no wolf either real or mystical, has been seen in the valley. The Wolftrap White Wine is an intriguing blend of Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc grapes. The Viognier brings a rich, ripe fruitiness on the nose with its alluring peach melba aromas. Chenin Blanc offers acidity for balance and freshness, with layered fruitiness on the mid-palate. Grenache Blanc is always used in the blend for its gentle yellow plum and slightly zesty character and elegance. The nose is lively and inviting, with attractive aromas of yellow apple, ripe lemons, greengage and lemon verbena and gentle whiffs of clove, nutmeg and ginger creating complexity. The slight spicy notes and citrus character of the nose follow through onto the palate with flavours of Cape gooseberry, white peach, fresh pineapple, and a hint of lemon curd. The mid-palate is smooth, round and fleshy, although also very focused. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with integrated acidity and the subtle touch of oak adding to its great balance. Lemongrass and angelica linger on a fresh finish.

A lovely Blended South African White

From the Franschhoek-valley winery, it has crisp citrus acidic tones with pear apricot and oaky notes, very enjoyable wine at affordable prices
