How about some stargazing?

Few wines reach the iconic, instantly recognisable status that The Chocolate Block has mastered. Like all superstars, the way to stay timeless is to change, adapt.

Winemaker Marc Kent tweaks each year's vintage to best reflect the character of his ancient vines, the year's seasons and the sometimes wild, sometimes calm weather that the grapes ripen in on South Africa's Western Cape. Since 2017, the wine's principle grape, Syrah, has been ripening in 'one of the world's greatest Syrah vineyards' – exclusively in the Swartland, an area north of Cape Town.

Pour yourself a glass and settle among the stars.
