Boekenhoutskloof The Wolftrap Red 2019
Exceptional balance with fresh, integrated acidity. Dark plums, black olives and hints of tar and cigar box linger on an earthy finish.
Boekenhoutskloof's The Wolftrap Red is a classic, rustic Rhone style red; juicy, spicy and peppery, with a dash of Viognier adding vitality. For the 2018 vintage, a higher percentage of Syrah made the blend as the winemaker loves this robust, brambly variety with its fine aromas of violets and ripe plums.
Dark and dense. Brooding, intense nose with sumptuous dark fruits; blackberries and blueberries, with baking spices and heady notes of violets adding complexity. Dark berry fruit, liquorice, sweet tobacco and allspice flow onto a vibrant palate with bright, velvety tannins and a silky texture. Exceptional balance with fresh, integrated acidity. Dark plums, black olives and hints of tar and cigar box linger on an earthy finish.
