      Product: The Chocolate Block

      The Chocolate Block is a highly regarded South African wine that hails from the prestigious Boekenhoutskloof winery, nestled in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley of the Western Cape. This wine has earned international acclaim for its exceptional quality and distinctive character, making it a standout in the world of South African winemaking. What sets The Chocolate Block apart is its captivating blend of grape varieties. Typically, this wine is crafted primarily from Syrah, complemented by Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, and Viognier. This unique combination of grapes contributes to the wine's complexity and depth. In the glass, The Chocolate Block displays a deep and alluring ruby-red hue, offering a mere glimpse into the richness of flavors that lie within. On the nose, it presents an enticing bouquet of aromas, featuring an array of dark berries, plums, and delicate notes of spices and florals. These intricate scents lay the foundation for a truly memorable tasting experience.

      Intense blackberry, bramble, and lavender aromas with gentle nuances of potting soil and cured meat dominate a dark and brooding nose. The abundance of perfume and the earthy character of the nose follows through generously onto a powerful palate, with a lush compote of blueberries, ripe plums, black currants & cherries. Cacao-powdery tannins are abundant, adding texture and complexity to an almost savoury mid-palate, seamlessly complementing the vivid dark fruits, alcohol and acidity. This is a robust, structured wine, yet it is delicate, poised and elegant at the same time. Black fruits, cumin spice, white pepper, liquorice and hints of garrigue persist on a velvety finish.
