WINE OF THE MONTH Happinez wine of the month, October 2018The Wolftrap White 2015BoekenhoutskloofSouth AfricaGlass 8Bottle 38Grape variety:Viognier 52%; Chenin Blanc 26%; Grenache Blanc 22%Wine region:The name "Boekenhoutskloof" comes from the Cape beech, or Kaapse boekenhout, a tree indigenous to Franschhoek and once used by the Cape Dutch for furniture making. It is pronounced, not easily, bok-un-hoatscloof.Wine making: As with all Boekenhoutskloof blends, percentages may vary from year to year but the components remain the same. Deciding on the perfect blend is always interesting and challenging. This year Grenache Blanc played a more significant role in this intriguing blend. Grapes are sourced mainly from Malmesbury and Stellenbosch. Components are French oak matured, blended and bottled to present a wine that over delivers on every level.Tasting notes: The rich yet lively nose shows white peach, apricot and apple blossom aromas in abundance. The palate is packed with juicy fruit flavours: peach and yellow apple follow through with hints of lemon grass and lime. The wine is generously textured with slight oak nuances, a weighty mid-palate, balanced, integrated acidity and a lingering, stone fruit finish.
