The Chocolate Block 2017

Swartland W.O., South Africa

Colette scored this wine: 91/100

On the nose this wine is full of dark berries, spices with floral hints. The aromas carry through onto the palate with a velvety mouthfeel and complex dark fruit, spice and dark chocolate . Incredibly well balanced with long lingering smooth finish of dark chocolate, dark fruit and dark pepper. Pairs incredibly with a grilled steak, roasted herb potatoes and charred veggies.
