Product Description The Chocolate Block 2015

Winemaking and aging

The Chocolate Block 2015 is a blend of 73% Shyraz, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Garnacha, 4% Cinsault, 1% Viognier. The harvest is carried out according to the maturity of the plants in the different vineyards and adjusting all the protocols and actions at the optimum harvest time. Grenache ripens in 600-liter barrels to maintain the fruity character of the variety.

Once the fermentation process is finished, the wine matures in new French oak barrels (for Cabernet Sauvignon) and for second and third years for 16 months. After this period it is subjected to filtration.

 The Chocolate Block 2015 Tasting Notes

  • View: The Chocolate Block has an intense ruby ​​red color.
  • Nose: The nose shows a large amount of currant, plum, cedar, as well as mineral touch of the land with a variety of spices. The floral notes add complexity.
  • Palate: The palate highlights the ripe fruit, but at the same time firm and structured, with elegant and flexible tannins. The fruit flavors, combined with the touches of the wood, as well as the well-integrated tannins and balanced acidity, lead us to an intense but at the same time mild wine to ensure a long and succulent finish.

Pairing

The Chocolate Block is ideal to accompany fatty fish, sweet sauces and stews.

An impressive wine to be tasted alone, with a bottle aging potential of at least 8 more years in which we will find new nuances and sensations.
