Tasting Notes
The latest Vintage of The Chocolate Block, Boekenhoutskloof's Cult Cape Blend has now hit the shelves - always one of South Africa's most sought after wines - this year's will not disappoint. On pouring, a deep garnet colour, with vibrant black cherries and raspberries with hints of chocolate orange, cardamom and wild herbs. The spicy black fruited palate is balanced and long and inviting with perky tannins and acidity, this bodes well for a bright future. An interesting blend of 79% Syrah, 11% Grenache, 6% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 3% Cinsault and not forgetting the 1% Viognier!
