Boekenhoutskloof the Chocolate Block 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

An iconic wine, packaged in our striking wooden presentation box with straw filling. The top wines from Boekenhoutskloof are made in tiny quantities and have a fanatical following - so canny customers buy early to avoid disappointment. Chocolate Block has carved out an impressive niche for itself and still provides that deep, complex character and an enormous sense of fun that runs like a seam throughout the range. The Chocolate Block is a blend of Syrah; Grenache Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Viognier. On the nose there are aromas of dark cherries, chocolate and sweet spices from the French oak. The palate is rich and generous, with juicy dark fruits and a fresh, spicy finish. This wine has an excellent ageing potential. Match with spiced meats, gamey stews and lighter style curries (with duck or lamb).

The farm of Boekenhoutskloof wasoriginally granted to Huguenot settlers in1776. For two hundred years it remained in the same family. Over the two centuries they engaged in agricultural activities as diverse as tobacco, fruit, cattle and ultimately wine production. The original owners ceased wine production in the 1940s. The existing partnership re-opened the winery for production in 1996. Lead by Cellarmaster Marc Kent (South African Winemaker of the Year, 2007), the Winery is now regarded as one of SA’s top producers. Boekenhoutskloof is a Syrah specialist, with its premium range selling out on release each vintage. The Chocolate Block, a Syrah based blend, is probably the most successful new offering to come out of SA in the modern era. Boekenhoutskloof is acknowledged by Robert Parker’s Wine Buyer’s Guide and The 2009 Wine Report as South Africa’s # 1 producer. Read less
