The Chocolate Block is a cult favourite – it usually sells out before it even hits the shop floor. It’s made by Boekenhoutskloof, named South Africa’s Winery of the Year 2020. Their winemaker, Marc Kent, is secretive about exactly how this wine is made. He tweaks the blend with every vintage, so no two Chocolate Blocks are quite the same. But it’s always a blend of rich and ripe varieties: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon – with a touch of Viognier for added perfume. It’s seriously plush and full of plum, blackberry, blueberry and cherry flavours. Smooth, supple, with fine tannins – it’s made to go with food. Fantastic with aromatic lamb tagine.

A big wine which is a bit rough around the edges. There are better wines to be had at this price point.

This is definately a food wine to further soften those tannins. This still needs time to integrate further and make this a super integrated wine. I love the warm softness initially on the palate but thise tannins keep coming back. Enjoyable

Was recommended this by staff during a shop visit. I have never tasted anything so unpleasant and no it wasn’t cork. Tried it but never again.

Really can’t understand the popularity of this wine, lack of body and taste in my view.

Try it again with some bottle aging.... we work on 4-5 years after vintage....this ages really well in the bottle. You will notice a difference.... we have 2019 this year for Boxing Day.

Having visited the vine yard itself, this is one of the best red wines on the market.

Chocolate block... Great tasting wine with that mix of dark red fruit, excellent with lamb or beef.
