The Wolftrap White 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Complex flavours of fruit blossom, dried fruit and spice. Rich creamy texture with some minerality and elegant oak nuances. Balanced natural acidity with concentrated flavours that lingers on the palate.

The farm of Boekenhoutskloof wasoriginally granted to Huguenot settlers in1776. For two hundred years it remained in the same family. Over the two centuries they engaged in agricultural activities as diverse as tobacco, fruit, cattle and ultimately wine production. The original owners ceased wine production in the 1940s. The existing partnership re-opened the winery for production in 1996. Lead by Cellarmaster Marc Kent (South African Winemaker of the Year, 2007), the Winery is now regarded as one of SA’s top producers. Boekenhoutskloof is a Syrah specialist, with its premium range selling out on release each vintage. The Chocolate Block, a Syrah based blend, is probably the most successful new offering to come out of SA in the modern era. Boekenhoutskloof is acknowledged by Robert Parker’s Wine Buyer’s Guide and The 2009 Wine Report as South Africa’s # 1 producer. Read less

Spicy and gamey nose, with lots of black fruit and pepper, and a good blend of oak notes. Mild body with soft tannins despite the young age, bolstered by good berry fruit acidity. Well composed, not too complex but hits the right notes, and easy to please.

Intense red colour with a purple rim. A spicy profile with ripe black fruit and violets. Smooth and rich on the palate with soft tannins, good density and a hint of oak. A well balanced, unpretentious wine made for easy drinking.

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.
