Is there chocolate in it or not?

For years now the rumors have been rife that Boekenhoutskloof has been up to strange things in the cellar Ė like adding chocolate and spice to their wines. While they canít deny that perhaps the off thing or two may have occurred at some of their cellar parties, they have to take and enigmatic Mona-Lisa type stance on this chocolate rumor. To them, chocolate is chocolate and wine is wine. They only express what is there. Youíll just have to try the wine to know more.

Spicy dark chocolate surrounded by ripe berry flavours and a fine clove character show in the nose of the chocolate block. The richness of the palate with ripe flavours is in balance with the smooth tannins. This wine has great length with a minimum of 5 years ageing potential.
