Klares, intensives Karminrot, intensive Schokoladenoten und eine wunderbare Würze sorgen für einen unvergleichlichen Geschmack. Es finden sich reife Früchte (Pflaumen) und Noten von Edelbitterschokolade, feine Gewürznoten, Vanille und etwas Veilchen. Der Wein hat eine enorme Tiefe, strahlt Wärme aus und zeigt sich trotz der Macht und Kraft erstaunlich sinnlich und verklingt mit angenehmer Frische und toller Länge. Ein Wein mit viel Potenzial, den man nicht so leicht vergisst!

The Chocolate Block blend from Boekenhoutskloof is by far our best selling wine from South Africa. Characterized by an expressive nose with intense dark cherry,spiced raspberry,black fruit and violet-infused perfume.

Good full medium red. Highly aromatic nose melds blackberry, licorice, menthol and spicecake. Sweet and supple but juicy and primary too, with harmonious acidity framing and intensifying the dark fruit and spice flavors. A serious, youthfully aggressive midweight with substantial building, tongue-dusting tannins and a late note of balsamic nutty oak. Already quite perfumed but in need of at least another year or two in the cellar to express itself.

The 2011 Chocolate Block is a blend of 69% Syrah, and the rest Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier that sees a judicious 11% new oak. It has a compact bouquet of blackberry and licorice with hints of mocha just in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, minty opening. The tannins feel lithe in the mouth and the acidity is well-judged. Though the finish is uncomplicated, it is nicely focused with plenty of fresh blackberry and raspberry notes to satisfy the masses that continue to enjoy this wine. Drink now–2015.
