The Chocolate Block 2019 is a blend of Syrah (71%); Grenache Noir (11%); Cinsault (9%) Cabernet Sauvignon (8%); and Viognier (1%). This vintage is unique in the sense that all the grapes for our blend are now grown in the Swartland, hence its wine of origin certification.
The nose is dark, intense and brooding with aromas of black cherries, cardamom, sweet tobacco, espresso and subtle whiffs of perfume. The dark fruit character of the nose follows through onto an exceptionally complex, juicy palate with gentle nuances of ripe plums, violets, black olives, cloves, and liquorice. The mid-palate is focused, lithe and elegant with very fine, cocoa powdery tannins.
Food Pairing game meats, hard cheese, spiced meat, rich stewed meat
