Boekenhoutskloof – 1 x 3 liter Chocolate Block 2016

Tasting Notes:
The nose is exceptionally intense and complex with red berry fruit juxtaposed against a dark, brooding
fruit compote and Swartland violets. The nose exudes aromas of raspberry, mulberry, blackberry,
damson, dark chocolate and liquorice with whiffs of cloves, nutmeg and orange rind. The wine
has a soft, smooth entry, a rich mid-palate and the abundance of red and black berry fruit on the nose
follows through with balanced acidity and svelte cocoa powdery tannins. The Porseleinberg fruit
certainly makes an impact to the blend, lending structure and a piercing yet lifted perfume. The wine
has a long, lingering finish reminiscent of Swiss dark hazelnut chocolate.
