The Chocolate Block Magnum 2018 150cl
The Chocolate Block Magnum 2018
A complex and exciting blend of Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon with just a hint of Viognier gives this Red Wine an opulent style with super-fine tannins and a luscious palate giving out distinctly chocolately notes.
The Wine being Syrah led and as the name suggests shows a beautiful richness of Mocha, chocolate and blackberries along with a fresh spiced black pepper. An earthy, rustic nose gives up aromas of leather, earth and spices over a backdrop of blackcurrant and ripe raspberry fruit.
Harmonious and powerful on the palate, with a cocoa and pepper complexity. Textured, composed and seamless in style. Smooth and luxurious this wine is ready to drink, although will benefit from some ageing also.
The grapes come from several specially selected blocks of vines on Boukenhoutskloof's estate, fermented and aged for up to 18 months in old French oak. Made in very limited quantities, this is a fantastic wine and what better way to enjoy it than from this fantastic Magnum!
