Boekenhoutskloof The Wolftrap 2021
|Region||South Africa, Western Cape|
The nose is opulent and intense, oozing with rich, ripe dark fruits and plums and subtle whiffs of cloves, cardamon, black pepper and perfume. Brambles, blackberry and liquorice flavours intertwine with hints of raw biltong on the palate, and the fruitcake spiciness of the nose follows through beautifully. The midpalate is velvety and brooding, with juicy cranberry fruit, vibrant acidity and integrated, silky oak tannins creating exceptional balance. Savoury nuances add to the layered complexity of the wine, with accents of black olive tapenade and cassis lingering on a smooth, round finish.
