Chocolates tend to coat the tongue, which means they are not ideal for enjoying with wine. However, Boschendal’s chocolatiers have found that West African cocoa melts on the tongue leaving no coating.

Using that chocolate they have developed exclusive recipes for Boschendal with a range of flavours including apricot, lime, orange marmalade, spicy Glühwein and lemon cream, to match with the 1685 range of Boschendal wines.

The Boschendal Chocolate Experience costs R60 per person. The slabs of chocolate are exclusive to Boschendal, and sell for R38 each.

Chocolate is paired with:

1. Boschendal 1685 Sauvignon Blanc - the chocolate enriches the wine’s tropical fruit flavours.
2. Boschendal 1685 Chardonnay - the white, velvety chocolate for this pairing enhances the flavour profile of citrus and creamy vanilla.
3. Boschendal 1685 Shiraz - the chocolate produces a soft finish with a mix of fruit and spices including cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon.
4. Boschendal Vin D’or - the chocolatiers streched their creative powers to craft a chocolate which perfectly matches this sweet wine from Boschendal’s Reserve Collection.
