The Chocolate Block Boekenhoutskloof, Swartland, South Africa 2018
Syrah 69%, Grenache 13%, Cinsault 9%, Cabernet Sauvignon 8% and Viognier 1% matured in oak for 12 months
The nose is dense and brooding, yet opulent, with its compote of dark, ripe plums and blackberry and attractive whiffs of liquorice, violets, cocoa and mint. The black fruit and perfume of the nose follow through onto a rich, savoury palate with flavours of dark cherry, red currant, black olives and cured meat. Fine grained, svelte tannins are in perfect balance with the lemony acidity, lending complexity to the mid-palate. The wine is full-bodied with a rich, smooth mouthfeel. The finish is charry and long, with hints of maraschino cherry, pimento olives and sweet tobacco.
Great with spiced red meat, stews and casseroles and hard cheeses.
