The 2015 is an absolute peach of a wine - with more Grenache than ever and all Swartland fruit, it's probably the best Chocolate Block yet. A cult wine - grab it before its all gone!


Tasting Notes

An exciting blend of 5 grape varieties, from innovative winemaker Marc Kent. Dominated by around 67% Syrah, the grapes come from several specially selected blocks of vines on Boukenhoutskloof's estate, fermented and aged for up to 18 months in old French oak. An earthy, rustic nose gives up aromas of leather, earth and spices over a backdrop of blackcurrant and ripe raspberry fruit. Harmonious and powerful on the palate, with a cocoa and pepper complexity. Most at home with spice-rubbed steaks, roast rib of beef, or game dishes.
