Exclusive – Platter's 5-star in large format

Plush and generous but serious…’ – Platter’s Guide, 95/100

This is a very impressive wine. It is a great achievement that this level of quality is achieved with 2,057 barrels of wine. Bravo.’ – Neal Martin, 92/100

The Chocolate Block from Boekenhoutskloof… seems to have gone to the next level with the 2017 vintage.’ – Christian Eedes, 93/100

One of South Africa’s most successful brands.’ – Tim Atkin MW, 93/100

The 2017 Chocolate Block is undoubtedly the finest since its inception. It's the 3rd vintage produced from 100% Swartland fruit and has an added sense of refinement and complexity. While produced in volume, we are delighted to offer a limited opportunity to get this Platters’ 5-star wine in 1,500ml, 3,000ml and 6,000ml bottles.

Large format bottles are ideal for maturing wine as they add years to the ageing potential. This is smart stuff so grab some while stocks last.


The Chocolate Block 2017


The Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block has been hugely successful in both international and local markets, whilst maintaining its sense of place and a high level of quality and consistency. The latest 2017 is the best yet. It is finely crafted and continues with the refinement that was first seen in the 2015 release.
