From the beautiful South African region of Franschhoek, the Boekenhoutskloof winery produces limited quantities of it's famous Chocolate Block wine. An intricate blend of five grape varieties including Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache Noir and Cincault. The wine being Syrah led and as the name suggests shows a beautiful rich Mocha, chocolate and blackberries along with a fresh spiced black pepper. Smooth and luxurious this wine is ready to drink, although will benefit from someÂ ageing also.
