Smoky, a bit flinty and subtly vegetal on the nose with subdued bitter apple and pithy fruits topped by a touch of white pepper. A bit loose on the palate but nicely transparent with slightly creamy, almond flavors up front that are supported by bright mineral notes. The fruit remains subdued on the palate, if nicely balanced. This is an easy sipper which does gain depth with air and shows a some nice detail, but it is a small scaled wine with a modest finish today, ending with some apple seed notes. 87pts

This is noticeably oaky on the nose with a sharp mineral and spice quality. At first this seems a bit creamy on entry but it quickly turns really decisive on the palate with obvious oak and almost reticent fruit that build slows. At first there is only a base of fruit here but with time, and with food, you get lovely notes of lemon curd, orange creme, honeycomb and walnut skins that gains nice focus on the appley acid finish. Not a blockbuster but a really fine food wine and one that gives back to your for paying attention. 88pts

Buttery and chardonnay-like on the nose but transforms into a light more lady-like wine on the palate yet has a powerful edge of smoky campfire...talk about an identity crisis!

Besides, Viognier, this also has Chenin and Grenache Blancs. An unusual blend, and the risk pays off. There's sweet fruit and vanilla on the nose, with some toast and sesame, which I think comes from the Chenin. The flavors round each other out nicely. Would be great with food!

Very good wine for the price. Let it open up for an hour or so and it's even better. The nose was herbal with hints of blackberry. Tasted like berry with a little herb and leather

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.

An aromatic dry blend. It is fresh and lively with a lengthy finish.


External Review

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.
