The Wolftrap Rosé is an aromatic dry blend. It is fresh and lively with a lengthy finish. 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.
The 2018 Wolftrap Rosé from Boekenhoutskloof smells like summer! It begins with pleasing aromas of fresh red cherries, flowers, raspberries, watermelon and more. The wine tastes a bit more tart in the mouth with citrus zest and a bit of tropical fruit added to the flavors from the nose. It's quite good and very easy to drink. With loads of refreshment, this would make a great wine while poolside. It ends with a tart, lasting, satisfying, clean finish.
