The Chocolate Block Boekenhoutskloof 2021


The Chocolate Block Boekenhoutskloof

Deep red color. The scent of berries, dark fruit, black pepper and herbs. The taste opens with red fruit impressions and continues with elements of marzipan and mineral accents. The whole is mouth-filling with a particularly elegant structure.

A surprising powerhouse from South Africa. Exceptionally perfumed in the scent. An abundance of red and dark berries, violets and intense white pepper. And then that explosion of flavor in your mouth. All layers: from soft, ripe fruit, through spices such as cardamom, cumin and cloves, to black peppercorns. Concentrated, structured and balanced. With fine acidity, tannins reminiscent of cocoa powder and a cedar wood character. Ending in a long sultry aftertaste.

The grapes are picked by hand and only the best grapes are selected. Each variety is fermented separately. Maturation takes place in French oak and an accurate selection is made each harvest year for the final blend.

This internationally loved red wine is powerful, a real evening wine. At dinner with a piece of grilled meat, with the cheese board as a ending or later in the evening by the fireplace. Also an ideal wine to give as a gift.
