A half bottle of South Africa's iconic and highly-rated Chocolate Block. Smooth and full-flavoured.

The Chocolate Block has rightfully earned it reputation as one of the UK's most popular and exclusive wines, this beautiful blend is always in demand with this latest vintage likely to be the most popular yet. Syrah and then Grenache from the esteemed Porseleinberg estate in Swartland take the lead in this year's blend with an increased percentage of Cinsault, these are complimented Cabernet Sauvignon and a very small touch of Viognier. The wine spends 12 months in 1st, 2nd and 3rd use French Oak barrels before being bottled.

Tasting Notes

The 2018 Chocolate Block is made primarily with Syrah and Grenache, with a nose of raspberry, damson, liquorice, nutmeg and orange rind. The palate is full-bodied yet fresh with flavours of black and red cherry, blackberry and cocoa. The wine has a long finish which is smooth and vibrant with a delicious minerality and framed by good tannins. Enjoy with roast beef or game. Drink now until 2025+.
