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 2020 Chocolate Block is medium bodied, covering the entire spectrum of berry fruit - from tart red plums to rich blue and black berries, with very fine, cocoa powdery tannins. Typical Syrah on the nose with intense spicy notes which is supported by ripe plum, black fruit and violet aromas. Grippy acidity and well integrated tannins with a well textured and rounded mouth feel. The finish is svelte, peppery long and lingering with superb structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon.
Serve with lamb, game and cheeses.
GRAPE VARIETY: SYRAH, GRENACHE, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CINSAULT, VIOGNIER
