The Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block has an expressive nose with intense dark cherry spiced raspberry, black fruit and violet-infused perfume. With time another dimension of rusticity and fleshiness is revealed with underlying earthy notes.
The palate is firmly structured, yet elegant, with supple tannins and spicy oak aromas covering a rounded mid-palate that reveals purity of fruit and a lifted freshness.
Classically styled with integrated tannins and balanced acidity to ensure a long, succulent and textured finish.
