The Chocolate Block Boekenhoutskloof 2011 Wine Review
Savoury, complex and delicious: wow! Cassis, blackberry and cedar forest. Meaty and enticing, full-bodied wonderful with a concentrated weave of anise, cigar box, pepper and meaty notes. Extremely juicy and mouthwatering in a food-happy kind of way. Balanced and delicious: this is a terrific red to red if you're not familiar with South African wines, or even if you are. Highly recommended. Best Beef Wine

|Caryl Mostacho rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
Love the complex flavours in this wine. And has a very smooth mouth feel.
Not a coincidence it's called Chocolate Block as the flavours just go so well with dark chocolate and berries.
|This full-bodied red wine is a blend of 69% shiraz, 14% grenache, 11% cabernet sauvignon, 5% cinsault and 1% viognier grapes. This wine was awarded 4 1/2 stars (out of 5) in the 2013 Platter's South African Wine Guide. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.|
