Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon Grenache Noir Cinsault
$144.88 / case(6)
Winemaker’s comments: the 2014 chocolate block is a blend of syrah (73%); cabernet sauvignon (12%); grenache noir (10%); cinsault (4%) and viognier (1%). This wine is the perfect example of identifying undiscovered” parcels of vineyard with amazing potential and utilizing it to unleash its world class quality. Most of the syrah grenache noir cinsault and viognier come from the swartland with its unique growing conditions and dryland farmed vineyards to ensure it deep-rooted vines and therefore optimal concentration of colour flavour and tannin structure. The grenache noir was matured in 600l barrels to retain the unmistakable fruit and vibrancy of the cultivar. The cabernet sauvignon is sourced from franschhoek and stellenbosch. The wine matures in 1st (all of the cabernet sauvignon) 2nd and 3rd filled french oak barrels (eight 2500l french oak foudres) for 16 months before it gets a light egg-white fining and filtration. 1742 barriques were selected for this wine.
