Blend: 60% Syrah, 39% Mourvèdre, 1% Viognier

Although the cultivars making up the Wolftrap blend now remains the same from vintage to vintage, the percentages of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier might differ. The 2007 blend has a dominant 60% Syrah of which a part was co-fermented on Viognier skins, but also for the first time on lignified Viognier stalks. After separating the Viognier juice from the skins to make white wine, we use part of those skins to co-ferment with the Syrah. The added Viognier stalks to the Syrah ferment, not only extracts structural tannins but also adds a pepper spice character to the wine. The fleshiness of the Mourvèdre adds richness to the blend.
