The Chocolate Block is a cult favourite –made by Boekenhoustkloof - SA winery of the year in 2020. Their winemaker, Marc Kent, is tight-lipped about how exactly this wine is made – but that only adds to its mystique. He believes that the Cape Climate is a twin to the Mediterranean climate and blends varieties: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon together with a touch of Viognier for added perfume.
It’s seriously plush, packed with dark berry fruit. Think plums, blackberries, blueberries and cherries. Smooth, supple, with really fine tannins – it’s made to go with food.
This Cape Blend is full-bodied, juicy & rich with abundant ripe tannin and a savoury, smoky finish; be sure to decant this one because it really opens up and starts showing off when its had a chance to breathe. It is also delicious straight out of the bottle.
