Description

“The Chocolate Block 2020 relied vastly on our own fruit from Porseleinberg and Goldmine farms – this had an
immense effect on the flavour and energy of this unique wine. Porseleinberg offers purity of fruit where Goldmine brings structure. The vineyards on these two stellar properties have become well-established and are beginning to show their potential.” – Marc Kent

Wine tasting notes

A spectacular melange of ripe red and black fruits explode on the nose, which continue through to the juicy palate layered with nuances of creamy cocoa, spice and liquorice, all culminating in a plush lingering finish with hints of graphite and spice enrobed in fine tannins. Savoury and rich, this opulent wine bewitches vintage after vintage - a legend which has deservedly achieved cult status!
