Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block 2011 750ml

Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block

The influence of the Grenache’s red fruits on The Chocolate Block is striking. The nose shows an abundance of redcurrant, plums, crushed rock, and an array of spices on this South African red wine. Spicy oak aromas cover a rounded mid-palate that reveals layers of fruit with intense purity.

By blending the best components to create a wine that is true in character and consistent in quality we were rewarded with the 2009 Syrah/Viognier. The uber-ripe Viognier were blended to the Shiraz to add perfume to the spice. After the Syrah spent nine months in French oak it was racked, blended and bottled. Grapes were sourced from Malmesbury in the Swartland.

An expressive nose with intense dark cherry spiced raspberry, black fruit and violet-infused perfume. With time another dimension of rusticity and fleshiness is revealed with underlying earthy notes. The palate is firmly structured, yet elegant, with supple tannins and spicy oak aromas covering a rounded mid-palate that reveals purity of fruit and a lifted freshness. Classically styled with integrated tannins and balanced acidity to ensure a long, succulent and textured finish.
