2022 The Wolftrap Syrah Mourvèdre Viognier Western Cape
The Wolftrap is the celebrated Boekenhoutskloof entry level label and is a perenially reliable performer and wonderful value for money. While the blend of grapes varies a bit from one year to the next Syrah is always the predominant grape followed by mourvèdre and a splash of Viognier. It leads with intense dark fruit aromas of blackberries, blueberries and a whiff of violets, while on the palate a hint of liquorice and sweet tobacco add to the full, dark berry flavours. With a really sillky texture it's very smooth and well balanced.
