The Chocolate Block 2016

Syrah Blend

—VINTAGES#: 129353
The Chocolate Block 2016
This is the second vintage of The Chocolate Block from Swartland fruit, combining mostly Syrah with Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsaut and Viognier aged in older wood. For such a huge blend (590,000 bottles), it's especially impressive in drought-affected 2016 with crowd-pleasing blackberry, bramble and tapenade flavours framed by oak. 2018-24. Score - 92.
