Tasting notes

The Chocolate Block, a long standing favourite with Waitrose customers, is a complex blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon with just a hint of Viognier. An opulent style with super-fine tannins and a luscious palate named for the distinctly chocolately notes on both the nose and palate.

Expert reviews

"This has a massive following among all those people who are lucky enough to discover it. I'm not sure what it is about this wine, but everytime I taste it, it just puts a huge smile on my face. Everytime I drink it it remindes me of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory."
