The Wolftrap Red Blend 2013
When the farm was founded, the Franschhoek Valley of South Africa was far wilder than it is today – as the wolf trap we 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 we created this wine to remind us of the mysteries and legends of days gone by. The Wolftrap is a rich, deep red blend that includes Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Viognier.
Grapes for this increasingly popular blend are sourced from Malmesbury in the Swartland. Small berries from dry land vineyards provide intense spicy flavours with soft balanced tannins. Perfume from the Viognier adds to the enjoyment of a wine which over delivers glass after glass.
