Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2013 The Wolftrap red is a Rhone Ranger blend of 67% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre, and 2 % Viognier. This is another outstanding value that comes across like a good French Cotes du Rhone. Peppery and meaty, with delicious red and black cherry notes, it offers up good spice, earth and texture. There is not a hard edge to be found in this wine, which has delicious fruit. Drink it over the next 1-2 years. (Feb 2014)

"Sourced from Malmesbury in the Swartland the Syrah provides the spice and weight while the Mourvedre adds structure and aroma to the blend. The pungent Viognier component boosts the perfume profile. French oak matured with the Viognier blended prior to bottling.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." -Winery
Wine maker notes
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.

Producer
Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means ”ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making. In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.
