Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block Cabernet Sauvignon. Syrah. Viognier. Grenache. Cinsault Franschoek 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows typical Malmesbury Syrah flavours on the nose with intense spicy notes which is supported by ripe plum, black fruit and violet aromas. The wine has a grippy acidity and well integrated tannins with a well textured and rounded mouth feel. The long, elegant and succulent finish with superb structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon leads us to believe that this wine has at least 8 years of aging potential.

Intense spicy notes on the nose which is supported by ripe plum, black fruit and violet aromas. The wine has a grippy acidity and well integrated tannins with a well textured and rounded mouth feel. Long, elegant and succulent finish with superb structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine will always have a special place in our home as it was the first red I was able to get my wife to enjoy with me. She has expanded her taste beyond this wonderful wine now, but this is still her old reliable and she loves to introduce it to people.

I truly enjoyed this wine! It was easy drinking with a round, yet deep, mouthfeel. Silky, with just enough bite to make me smile. I liked it straight out of the bottle, but it improved even more after 30 minutes of air time.

This was my gateway wine that introduced me to the world of wines. I have started expanding to reserves but this is still a nice drinker and I will always have a bottle or two in my wine rack. The smooth finish just leaves you wanting another drink and the aroma is plum and fruit.

Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block 2008: Bei diesem körperreichen und gut strukturierten Wein dominieren intensive Schokonoten und eine wunderbare Würze, Im Glas scheint er in einem klaren, intensiven, dunklen Kaminrot. In der Nase zeigt sich eine moderate Aromenausprägung, auch hier spürt man reifen Früchte und Schokoladennoten. Am Gaumen präsentiert er sich mit einem mittel gewichtigen Körper mit intensiven Aromen, nach dunklen Beerenfrüchten und einem Aromenspiel aus Frucht, Würze und Schokolade. Der Wein ist sehr vollmundig mit viel Schmelz und einem fast cremigen Charakter, dabei aber nicht übermäßig komplex, was dem leichten Genuss förderlich ist. Eignet sich zu Pizza mit Oliven, gegrillter Entenbrust mit Rotweinsauce und mittelkräftigem Schnittkäse.    Weingut:  BoekenhoutskloofAnbauregion:  FranschhoekRebsorten:  55% Syrah, 20% Grenache Noir, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cinsault, 4% ViognierInhalt:  0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,25 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5 g/lRestsüße: 2,5 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur:  16-18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (8 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgan Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek
