From Boekenhoutskloof Winery in Franschhoek, South Africa, we bring you the new vintage of Chocolate Block. This shipment is expected to sell out, and quickly, so don't "think about it".... The nose is a compote of dark fruit with an abundance of perfume and savoury whiffs of cured meat, black olives and cigar box.
*Immediate Delivery* Always an appealing and very classic style of Meursault with hints of honey, quince, mango and fresh double cream. Despite its ripe exotic fruit character, it has a balancing freshness providing drive and energy. A very rewarding wine.
