A nose of red fruit, spice and violet is followed by fresh but lush aromas of cherries, blackberries and a touch of smoke and dark chocolate. Smooth and integrated, with a pretty, aromatic character.

A blend of 60% Syrah, 39% Mourvedre and 1% Viognier. Currant, plum, peppery spices and woodsmoke on the nose. Offers moderate intensity but an easygoing creamy texture to the flavors of dark fruits and woodsmoke.

Offers nice plum and violet notes, with a dash of roasted vanilla on the soft finish. Syrah, Mourveacute;dre and Viognier. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Referred to by the winemakers as ldquo;The Easy One,rdquo; The Wolftrap is certainly soft and fun to drink, but at the same time itrsquo;s incredibly lush and full-flavored. Comprised mainly of Syrah and Mourvegrave;dre, with a splash of Viognier to add brightness and aromatics. Full of black fruit, strawberries, violets and pepper notes, with a long, very smooth finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Syrah 65%, Mourvèdre 32%, Viognier 3%. Both the Syrah and Mourvèdre component come from a Malmesbury vineyard with the Viognier sourced on Boekenhoutskloof. The reds were fermented using selected Rhone strain yeasts. French oak matured with Viognier blended prior to bottling. Egg white fined. Tasting Notes: Abundance of black fruit flavours with hints of violet. Unpretentious easy drinking with smooth tannins and sweet berries on the palate. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 89 points and 'Best Buy' by Wine Enthusiast.
