The Chocolate Block Half Bottle, Western Cape, South Africa

The Chocolate Block is a cult Wine from venerable South African producer Boekenhoutskloof for which demand always outstrips supply. Big, bold and powerful, this is a rich, smooth and complex red that lives up to its name.

Drink it on release, or cellar it for up to five years.

This powerful Red Wine with good fruit and some spice tempered by flavours of dark chocolate is great with food, it is perfectly suited to char-grilled steak, game and roasts or try it with bitter dark chocolate.

From the beautiful South African region of Franschhoek, the Boekenhoutskloof winery produces limited quantities of this famous Chocolate Block wine.  A complex, intricate and exciting blend of Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon with just a hint of Viognier gives this wine an opulent style with super-fine tannins and a luscious palate giving out distinctly chocolately notes.

Chocolate Block's big, bold style is Syrah led and, as the name suggests, shows a beautiful full bodied richness with flavours of blackberry, leather, spice and a hint of chocolate. Smooth, silky 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.  The blend for the 2016 Vintage is Syrah (79%); Cabernet Sauvignon (6%); Grenache Noir (11%); Cinsault (3%) and Viognier (1%).
