The name of the most treasured wine in South Africa, Chocolate Block, is probably inspired by its spice notes, especially those of chocolate and toast from its time in wood, which blend perfectly with a delectable ripe fruit to create a wonderful wine. Chocolate Block is produced by Boekenhoutskloof, one of the wineries responsible for the spectacular development in winemaking seen in South Africa and a key name on the world stage. They use organic production methods and their wines reflect the Mediterranean character of the Cape Peninsula. This Mediterranean profile is clearly seen through the coupage of Chocolate Block: its backbone is the Syrah variety (70%), although Grenache grapes (15%) bring distinctive fruity aromas and vitality. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsaut, and Viognier give it the final touch.
