THE CHOCOLATE BLOCK 2016
BOEKENHOUTSKLOOF

The Chocolate Block is a cult wine from venerable South African producer Boekenhoutskloof. Big, bold and powerful, this is a rich, smooth and complex red that lives up to its name.

  • Full-bodied and rich; smooth, silky mouthfeel; flavours of blackberry, leather, spice and - yes - chocolate.
  • A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Viogner from specially selected blocks.
  • Boekenhoutskloof, established in 1776, are located in the furthest corner of the Franshhoek Valley.
  • Drink it on release, or cellar it for up to five years.
  • Chocolate Block's big, bold style is perfectly suited to chargrilled steak, game and roasts.
