Penned by Boekenhoutskloof from the Coastal Region, the Chocolate Block 0,75 l reveals a dense, bright red color in the wine glass. When swirling the wine glass, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which is evident in the clear church windows on the edge of the glass. The bouquet of this red wine from the Coastal Region inspires with nuances of plums, blackcurrants, prunes and plums. If we continue to follow the aroma, vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa beans are added, promoted by the oak wood influence.
This South African wine inspires with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with 3.4 grams of residual sugar. This is a real quality wine that clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this South African is of course enchanting despite its dryness with the finest balance. Excellent taste does not necessarily require sugar. On the tongue, this powerful red wine is characterized by an incredibly creamy texture. Due to the moderate fruit acidity, the Chocolate Block 0,75 l double magnum flatters with a pleasant mouthfeel without missing out on freshness at the same time. The finale of this youthful red wine from the Coastal Region wine-growing region inspires with an extraordinary aftertaste. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes from the soil, which is dominated by sand.
