Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block 2019 South Africa Wine 150cl
Boekenhoutskloof’s The Chocolate Block – a Syrah based blend – is probably the most successful new wine offering to come out of South Africa in the modern era.
The Chocolate Block is in a magnum size bottle 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.Read more...
