Boekenhoutskloof The Wolftrap Rose Cinsault Syrah Grenache Noir
$102.19 / case(12)
Winemakers comments: a method known as saignee or bleeding was used to draw juice from the grapes prior to fermentation. Specially selected rose yeast strains were used for its serious berry fruit flavours. This year cinsault leads our blend adding perfume on the nose and freshness and fruit to the palate. The use of a little more grenache noir also contributes to the abundant red berry character of the wine. The blend was cold-fermented in stainless steel prior to sterile filtration and bottling. Tasting notes: the wine displays a vibrant oeil de perdrix colour in contrast to the lighter pink of 2014 and the deep salmon of 2015. The nose is complex and forthcoming with inviting floral notes and fresh red berry fruit in abundance. Juicy red cherries cranberries and pomegranate dominate a very balanced palate. The wine is fleshy and textured with integrated natural acidity. It ends clean and fresh with an attractive dark berry note and hints of cloves.

This wine is the perfect example of identifying “undiscovered” parcels of vineyard with amazing potential and utilizing it to unleash its world class quality. Most of the syrah grenache noir cinsault and viognier come from the swartland with its unique growing conditions and dryland farmed vineyards to ensure it deep-rooted vines and therefore optimal concentration of colour flavour and tannin structure. The grenache noir was matured in 600l barrels to retain the unmistakable fruit and vibrancy of the cultivar. The cabernet sauvignon is sourced from franschhoek and stellenbosch. The wine matures in 1st (all of the cabernet sauvignon) 2nd and 3rd filled french oak barrels (eight 2500l french oak foudres) for 16 months before it gets a light egg-white fining and filtration. 1742 barriques were selected for this wine.
