2020 The Chocolate Block, Boekenhoutskloof, Swaartland

Vineyard Information

Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm's name means 'ravine of the Boekenhout' (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.

In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established. As a producer, Boekenhoutskloof is a Syrah specialist, with its premium Boekenhoutskloof range selling out on release each vintage, and The Chocolate Block, a Syrah based blend, is probably the most successful new wine offering to come out of South Africa in the modern era.
