Summary

    Pairing chocolate and red wine can be a challenge that most are not prepared to face, but it can also be one of the most extraordinary gastronomic experiences of your life. Dark chocolate due to its lower sweetness levels can enhance the fruit flavours of the wine and create a marvellous tension between the tannic finish of a full bodied red and the bitter finish of the chocolate. Whether you’re a full on wine lover or an adventurous foodie this is a pairing you just can’t say no to!

    Boekenhoutskloof’s The Chocolate Block is one of the most popular wines coming from South Africa. A blend of Syrah, Grenache Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Viognier. This vintage is unique in the sense that all the grapes for their blend

    are now grown in the Swartland, hence its wine of origin certification. Grenache Noir always softens a masculine blend, adding to the flavour profile and not necessarily enhancing the structure as such. With enough structure from the Syrah, a bit more of Grenache has been added than previous years. The Grenache was matured in 600L barrels to retain its unmistakable fruity aromas and vibrancy. The wine matures in 1st (all of the Cabernet Sauvignon), 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels (eight 2500L French oak foudres) for 16 months before it undergoes a light egg-white fining and filtration.

    Charbonnel & Walker Truffles - a perfect match for fine red wines. Dark Marc de Champagne Truffles are lightly dusted with cocoa with a delicious Champagne truffle centre - mixed with a little rum. Marc de champagne is a clear liquor distilled from the pomace of pressed champagne grapes and is part of the secret ingredient of the delicate scent and unique flavour of Charbonnel & Walker's creamy Marc de Champagne truffles.

    If you require large quantities of truffles for an event or gifts please contact us before hand as they can be made to order and take up to three weeks to produce.
