CHOCOLATE BLOCK 2015
NOW IN STOCK
The 2015 Chocolate Block is a blend of Syrah (71%), Grenache Noir (15%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%), Cinsault (5%), and Viognier (1%).
The vintage is unique in the sense that all grapes are now grown in the Swartland, hence its wine of original certification.
The nose is exceptionally intense and complex with red berry fruit juxtaposed against a dark, brooding fruit compote and Swartland violets. It exudes aromas of raspberry, mulberry, blackberry, damson, dark chololate and liquorice with whiffs of cloves, nutmeg and orange rind.
The wine has a soft, smooth entry, a rich mid palate and the abundance of red and black berry fruit on the nose, following through with balanced acidity and svelte cocoa powdery tannins.
The Porseleinberg fruit certainly makes an impact to the blend, lending structure and a piercing yet lifted perfume.
The wine has a long, lingering finish reminiscent of Swiss dark hazelnut chocolate.
