Red wine Boekenhoutskloof "The Chocolate Block" 2017 - Half Bottle
One of the best wines from South Africa - from one of the best wineries in the country.
The incredibly exciting and at the same time sensual blend offers a stunningly wide range of flavors.
Boekenhoutskloof composes "The Chocolate Block" from special parcels of different vineyards. The hot, dry Malmesbury in the Swartland north of Cape Town provides the Shiraz or Syrah. The Grenache comes from the oldest vines of this variety in South Africa, with very sandy soils at the foot of the Cederberg mountains in Citrusdal. The Cinsault comes from old Bush vines, which are rooted in granite floors in Wellington. And Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier come from the organically farmed areas directly at the vineyard in Franschhoek. Each of these varieties delivers its contribution to the great fascination of this very substantial and unique wine.
Surely you will be delighted by this cuvée, too! But don't forget to drink it! Experience has shown that it can happen that you sunk your nose in the glass of wine all night long - just adoring its scent.
The South African "wine Pope" Platter awards this wine with fabulous 5 stars. The wine is characterized by the taste of red and black berries, violets and aromas of white pepper. Lower notes of cloves, cardamom and black pepper complete the taste. Get to know this unique wine, too!
