The Chocolate Block 2017 Boekenhoutskloof
A wine by Marc Kent, one of the most innovative winemakers in South Africa.
An earthy, rustic nose gives up aromas of leather, earth and spices over a backdrop of blackcurrant and ripe raspberry fruit. Harmonious and powerful on the palate, with a cocoa and pepper complexity. Most at home with spice-rubbed steaks, roast rib of beef, or game dishes.
