Syrah 91%; Mourvèdre 8%; Viognier 1%


For our 2018 blend, we opted for a higher percentage of Syrah – we love working with this robust,
brambly variety with its fine aromas of violets and ripe plums. We have therefore again accentuated a
spicy, peppery profile yet retaining the juicy, fruity character which is a hallmark of our Wolftrap
Red. Mourvèdre from the Swartland again lended a touch of austerity, a red fruit character and smoky
body with the dash of Viognier contributing perfume and vibrancy. This classic, rustic Rhône style
blend again over delivers at its attractive price point.


Tasting Notes
The wine is dark and dense on appearance. The brooding nose is intense and shows an abundance of
dark fruits. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, baking spices and heady whiffs of violets create
complexity. Dark berry fruit, liquorice, notes of sweet tobacco and allspice follow through onto a
vibrant mid-palate with bright, svelte tannins and a silky texture. The wine shows exceptional balance
with fresh, integrated acidity. Dark plums, black olives and hints of tar and cigar box linger on an
earthy finish.
