Winemaker's Notes

Wolftrap is a spicy, aromatic, red blend that has been French oak matured. The name is a tribute to the pioneers who in the early days of the Cape erected a wolf trap at Boekenhoutskloof. To date, no wolf either real or mystical has been seen in the valley.

Okay for the money, which by NO means implies cheap when it comes to the taste, this wine rocks hard! From the moment I sniffed the glass rim I knew this was going to be a great wine and it was. The aroma of leather, spice and mocha was very pleasing to the senses and then the taste was, well I must say phenomenal, with each sip I became mesmerized by the way it came across the pallet, smooth, velvet like in it's finish. This has to be my favorite wine of all time, I buy it by the case now. Great job to the winery on this one...Cheers Mike

We've found this through our local state store- it's a fantastic blend of red's rounded out by a splash of viognier. Leaning towards Meritage, but with fewer tannins- making it easier to sip alone- but still nice with a blue cheese. A balanced palate with a long, long finish marks this as one of our favorite "anything" wines. It's a perfect gift, a one-red-if-you-could-only-pick-one wine.

It is pronounced, not easily, bok-un-hoatscloof. The winery's white-washed, Dutch-style farmhouse, dated 1771, once stood in an orchard; pears still plump up in the trees around it. Kent and his partners, including South...

At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
