– IT CERTAINLY PAYS TO PUT PEN TO PAPER (FINGERS TO KEYBOARD)
Rossows restaurants were running a competition for the month of August – you could win a case of Chocolate Block for writing the best restaurant review. So with nothing to loose, I typed a quick review of an awesome little restaurant we went to in Stellenbosch – www.rossouwsrestaurants.com
And now I have six bottles of Chocolate Block on my wine rack – fantastic!!
Well five actually… one bottle was already enjoyed on the weekend – what better way to enjoy, than sharing with good friends?! Even the beer drinking boys managed to sneak a glass to enjoy this delicious wine.
You can taste the quality! A lovely smooth red blend (prodominently Shiraz with Grenache Noir, Cab Sav, Cinsault & Viognier) – it certainly lived up to my expectations. Dark fruit and spices together with floral notes to soften it, the tasting notes aptly describe this wine as”Textured, composed and seamless in style”. Delicious… thoroughly enjoyable!
I’ll have to put up a more detailed review on the next Wine with dinner occasion.
I have yet to get to the Boekenhoutskloof farm, but I have heard rave reviews and must definitely make a plan to get there!
