I first reviewed the 2013 vintage of The Chocolate Block on the app Vivino, it's handy and is worth getting if like myself you enjoy pretending you are more knowledgeable than you are.
My thoughts on The Chocolate Block haven't changed so I'm simply going to plagiarize my own review from Vivino and pretend that it's all new.
The Chocolate Block is simply a fantastic blend, right up there with the best of Franschhoek.
A rich and fragrant nose going into a smooth and balanced taste up front, intense in the middle and a delicate finish.
I know that with a blend of five grapes the wine is a bit schizophrenic but all blends have a touch of a multiple personality disorder and in this instance the voices in the bottle have lined up to form a choir.
It goes well with the Duck Ragu in Coppi, Belfast (one of my favourite restaurants, at time of writing I don't have a review for it up as I only go there on dates and, well... it's been a while).
