Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block 2016
This cult South African wine from venerable producer Boekenhoutskloof seems to get better with every vintage.
An exotic and vibrant vintage with an iron edge running alongside the inky core of prunes, mulberries, cloves and boasting floral notes. Firm ripe tannins on the palate covered by plums, blackberries and olive tapenade. Textured, composed and seamless in style.
The latest vintage of this cult South African wine from venerable producer Boekenhoutskloof is as rich and flavoursome as ever, but this year seems to have an added touch of elegance. A complex blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Viogner from specially selected blocks, it is full-bodied and rich, with a smooth, silky mouthfeel. Flavours of blackberry, leather, spice and - yes - chocolate. Drink now, or cellar for five+ years. The best vintage we've tasted.
