Boekenhoutskloof, Franschhoek

Chocolate Block, 2013



Grape Varieties: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache noir, Cinsault, Viognier

It has a rounded, quite sensual bouquet with pure, almost understated raspberry preserve, crushed strawberry and delicate touches of seaweed and fennel emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, quite feminine with fine tannins. This is very well-balanced and focused with superb freshness and vivacity toward the elegant finish.  Blend of Syrah ; Cabernet Sauvignon ; Grenache noir; Cinsault  and Viognier.
