More Information - Wolftrap Red

The nose is opulent and intense, oozing with rich, ripe dark fruits and plums and subtle whiffs of cloves, cardamon, black pepper and perfume. Brambles, blackberry and liquorice flavours intertwine with hints of raw biltong on the palate, and the fruitcake spiciness of the nose follows through beautifully. The midpalate is velvety and brooding, with juicy cranberry fruit, vibrant acidity and integrated, silky oak tannins creating exceptional balance. Savoury nuances add to the layered complexity of the wine, with accents of black olive tapenade and cassis lingering on a smooth, round finish.

Back Story & Wine Information

When the farm was founded, the Franschhoek valley 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.
