Natalie's Score: 88/100

This is a vibrant South African white wine blend of Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc grapes. The Wolftrap label is produced by the Boekenhoutskloof winery. Subtle floral and white peach on the nose: bursts like sunshine on the palate. Medium-bodied and lovely. Pair with mild curries.

Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nose of melon, ripe white nectarine, lime and floral notes. Very slight hint of wet hay.

On the palate, dry with nice acidity. Bursting with melon, and a hint of white pepper and a honey-lemon finish.

I'd try this with the ever-difficult asparagus.

Tasted October 2016.
Carola Price rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Clear and light yellow.
Nose is light but there is some honey and melon.
In the mouth it is bright and there is some acidity with some lemon and blood orange leading to a medium finish with good balance overall.
Drink now with turkey burgers.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

An Interesting assemblage offering crisp and tart herbaciousness, tart Granny Smith apple, and a hint of Bartlett pear. Medium body. Pair with lemon marinated BBQ chicken or shawarma. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 86/100.
