Gold Medal & 95/100 – International Wine and Spirits Competition 2023


Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"The Wolftrap is a tribute to the pioneers who in the early days ventured into the Cape wilderness and erected a wolf trap on Boekenhoutskloof. To date, no wolf either real or mystical, has been seen in the valley. The Wolftrap – a Boekenhoutskloof original.

The nose is luxurious and intense, with aromas of ripe, dark fruits, plums and blackberries, along with delicate hints of cloves, cardamon, and black pepper, as well as a touch of perfume. On the palate the flavours of brambles, blackberry, liquorice, and biltong merge together, with the same spice characteristics following through beautifully. The mid palate is smooth and rich, with juicy cranberry, balanced acidity, and seamless oak tannins. Savoury notes such as black olive tapenade and cassis add to the layered complexity of the wine which lingers on a smooth, round finish.

The 2022 harvest was of exceptional quality. The overall growing season was cool with good weather conditions for most of the growing season. January and February saw a sudden temperature spike which contributed to a smaller crop and good-quality fruit. With its upright canopy, the vigorous, hardy and thick-skinned Mourvèdre cultivar, is able to withstand the annual heat waves without compromising fruit quality. The variety is especially highlighted in vintage 2022. With its intensely bold colour, smoky aromas, and meaty flavours, the Mourvèdre is fundamental in this iconic blend. Contributing to the layers of black fruit and spice is our Swartland Syrah which lifts the palate with its beautiful cherry and plum flavours. We intervene as little as possible, aiming for a pure expression of variety and terroir."


95/100 IWSC 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"The nose is focused, showing dark berries and floral notes. The gentle palate oozes complexity and concentration with a medley of red, blue and black fruits mingling with liquorice and savoury notes. Great structure with crunchy tannins and a very refreshing finish."
