2019 Chocolate Block From Boekenhoutskloof is Coming!!

The new release of arguably South Africa’s most famous red wine is happening in September and Songbird Wines will be offering the wine at a special pre-release price.

What is Chocolate Block? Well here’s Neil Martin from Vinous talking about the 2018 –

“2018 The Chocolate Block is sourced from the Goldmine and Porseleinberg farms, the Cabernet originating from Voor-Paaderberg, and matured for 16 months in used oak barrels. It offers generous black plum and black currant aromas, pressed rose petals and a touch of menthol. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, and much
more structured than the vintages of old (as I have pointed out in previous reviews), displaying fennel, bay leaf and white pepper toward the finish. This feels long in the mouth. A classy Chocolate Block that treads a line between commercial and intellectual appeal.”

There is huge demand for this wine we at Songbird Wines expect this first parcel of Chocolate Block to be snapped up quickly. To receive the Chocolate Block offer at special release price then join our mailing list by registering here.
