The Chocolate Block is a popular red wine blend from South Africa's Western Cape region. The wine is made from a blend of five grape varieties: Syrah, Grenache Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, and Viognier.

On the nose, The Chocolate Block is characterized by intense aromas of dark fruit, such as blackberry and plum, as well as hints of spice and chocolate. On the palate, it is full-bodied with a rich and smooth texture, featuring flavours of black fruit, vanilla, and a touch of oak. The tannins are well-structured, providing a long and lingering finish.

This wine pairs well with a variety of dishes, such as grilled meats, roasted vegetables, and strong cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own as a sipping wine. The Chocolate Block has gained a cult following among wine enthusiasts for its unique flavour profile and excellent value for its quality.

Tasting Notes

A dark brooding wine with aromas of cherries, espresso and cardamon spice. The dark fruit carries over to the palate which has notes of ripe plums, violets, clove and liquorice. Medium bodied, balanced and layered, the finish is clean dry and lingering.
