TASTING NOTES

The Chocolate Block has a nose that is exceptionally perfumed with an abundance of black cherries, cardamom, sweet tobacco, espresso. On the palate, this wine is opulent and juicy with ripe plums, violets, black olives, cloves, and licorice. The mid-palate is rich, textured and balanced with cocoa powdery tannins and a definite cedar wood character from French oak. The finish is dry, peppery and lingering, with hints of dried cranberry, tar, graphite and smoke. It is a lot like a Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Never fails to deliver!

I went to the vineyard some 10 or 12 years ago and enjoyed a tasting at what I recall was a long kitchen table. The Chocolate Block was bold and smooth with lots of fruit and not too tannic. Sadly there was no allocation for sale at the vineyard and I had to procure locally. I am guessing that the vintage was around 2011. I have subsequently had all the vintages since and never been disappointed. My only regret is that I didn't leave some in the cellar to try as they aged.

Rich n tasty

Just my kind of red..full bodied, dark, fruity. Frankly all the wines I’ve had so far from WtS have been excellent both in terms of quality and value for money. I’m running low..send me some more :-)!!

Consistently good

Always popular and always good. This is a big wine, needs to breathe for a good 20 minutes. Great with steak.
