BOEKENHOUTSKLOOF THE CHOCOLATE BLOCK
The Chocolate Block from
Boekenhoutskloof in South Africa's Swartland wine region is a highly exciting
blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cinsault and Viognier.This wine appears almost
inky black in the glass. After a short time in the air, this red wine spreads a
seductive aroma of dark berries, tobacco boxes, floral notes - especially lilac
and violets - as well as delicate notes of sweet mocha and fine chocolate. On
the palate, Chocolate Block reveals itself to be very powerful with good
structure and excellent tannin, as well as an acidity that still offers this
cuvée quite a bit of reserve. The never-ending finish reveals its distinct
mineral component and fine spice flavors, as well as the fully ripe fruit and
cocoa that gives it its name.
Fresh berry flavours and a fine white pepper ness add a spicy profile to the nose. This is a wine of elegance and linearity. The palate seems almost seamless with the soft approachable tannins rounding off the mouth feel.
