The Chocolate Block from Boekenhoutskloof is one of South Africa's icons that makes a sought-after gift or an addition to your wine cellar. It is an international favourite.
The 2014 bursts with raspberries, allspice and a cool-climate-Syrah typicity underscored by dark fruit and floral incense. Structurally more intense than recent vintages with the Porseleinberg Syrah starting to make an impact, with a refreshing acidity luring you back for more. The Viognier adds subtle hi-tone nuances to the aromatic profile and some textural qualities. Bitter dark chocolate on the palate with cold soaked game, black fruit, hints of smoky minerality and oak spice. A pure, focussed, textured and penetrating palate.
