Boekenhoutskloof
Chocolate Block , Franschoek 2014

TASTING NOTES

The Chocolate Block 2014 displays a reserved but many-layered nose of dark berries: a mix liquorice, roasted hazelnuts and a peppery spiciness coming through. Very dense on the palate, with overtones of stewed plums and black cherry. Notes of vanilla, almonds and black olives add to the unique flavour profile. It has a lively acidity and soft tannins, and in the finish a mixture of black tea and dark chocolate notes. Very yummy! Dangerous addictive stuff!
