The Wolftrap Red 2022

Boekenhoutskloof, established in 1776, is a farm located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek Valley. The Wolftrap label is produced at this farm under Marc Kent, owner, chief winemaker and driving force behind both Boekenhoutskloof and The Wolftrap. The Wolftrap is a tribute to the pioneers who ventured into the Cape wilderness in the early days and erected a wolf trap on Boekenhoutskloof. To date, no wolf, either real or mystical, has been seen in the valley. The Wolftrap Red is a blend comprised of three Mediterranean varieties: Syrah, Mourvèdre, and a dash of Viognier. The nose is intense, dark, and brooding with an abundance of black fruit aromas and scents of violets, pepper, and cured meat with gentle whiffs of dried coriander and tar. The savoury, gamey smell and dark berries of the nose follow through onto the palate with flavours of liquorice, black olives, cardamom, and hints of cranberry, red currant, and cloves. The mid-palate is full, creamy, and smooth with supple tannins and integrated acidity and shows sweet tobacco and spicy undertones from subtle oak. The wine lingers in the mouth with a smoky, slightly charry, yet very juicy finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
