Additional Information

The Chocolate Block  2015 vintage shows typical 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 one to believe that this wine has at least 8 years of aging potential. Serve with lamb, game and cheeses.

History of the Boekenhoutskloof winery 

The Boekenhoutskloof farm was founded in 1776 by Hugenot settlers in the Franschhoek Valley, bringing with them Mediterranean grape varieties and the knowledge of how to make fine wines. Located a scenic 40 min drive from Cape Town, the winery is the far flung reaches of the Cape wine district, but yet is still recognised as one of the finest estates in the area.

In 1993, the farm was purchased and restored by a partnership of enthusiasts committed to the future of South African wine, implementing a new vineyard planting scheme, and laying down vines of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Semillon and Viognier. Since that time, the winery has gone from strength to strenght, and now enjoys a reputation as one of the leading estates in South Africa.
