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.
Intense aromas of citrus and saline minerals and vinified in stainless steel tanks to give a pure expression of Santorini Assyrtiko. Match with feta salad, barbecued aubergine, or fresh seafood.
Robert Parker.com "This is a new winery flexing it's muscles. Great wines."
Take advantage of our Thelema shipment with savings of 30%. The reds are aged cleverly in barrels where the oak does not overshadow the fruit. The whites have a freshness and balance that other wines double the price would die for...
*ARRIVES DECEMBER 2020* This wine honours long-time Shafer Winemaker Elias Fernandez and his relentless pursuit of quality. 86% Syrah, 14% Petite Sirah from a small ridgetop site along the Vaca Mountains, just south of Stags Leap District. It is aged for 30 months in 100% new French barrels (Troncais & Allier).
*ARRIVES DECEMBER 2020* Shafer’s single-vineyard Carneros-grown Chardonnay is produced from small-clustered clones of grapes selected for their low yields and distinctive flavors. Fermentation takes place within individual oak and stainless steel barrels using native yeasts.
