Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block - South African Wine Review

South Africa has a history of wine making that dates back to 1659. They produce some of the world’s top quality wines, and at one point Constantia was considered to be one of the greatest wines in the world. Wine production in South Africa is focused around Cape Town, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Worchester.

Wines from South Africa must be 100% grapes from their designated areas to be within the (Wine of Origin) WO system.

A very popular wine to come out of South Africa in recent years is Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block.

A Luscious South African Wine from Franschoek. This award winning wine is very smooth, rich and delicious. A blend of 5 traditional French grapes consisting of 69% Syrah, 12% Grenache Noir, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cinsault and 2% Viognier, resulting in dark chocolate flavours and good fruit.

Prduced by Boekenhoutskloof an independent family owned winery run by Marc Kent is delighted to acknowledge the Boekenhoutskloof - The Chocolate Block as one of their most popular wines. Marc Kent has won numerous John Platter 5 stars awards for their two flagship wines, Boekenhoutskloof Syrah and Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine has an ABV of 14.5%, is a 2008 vintage and is packaged in a 75cl bottle. Sulphite level is very low. This wine in made in limited quantities and is very difficult to find, however if you are interested in this wine or other South African Wines - take a look at the goodwineonline website.

A delicious wine that has seen great success in the UK.
