Beaumont Ariane Cabernet Franc 2022


The Ariane as a blend was first produced in 1998. Since then, it has evolved with the vintages and the maturation of the vines. Sebastian Beaumont is the winemaker and his wine club has given him great opportunities to look at the single varietals that went into the original blend. His favourite has always been the Cabernet Franc portion, which is now a key element in their Vitruvian blend, where it adds its distinct personality and beautiful perfume. This wonderful wine is now available as Beaumont Ariane.

The 2022 was dry and cool and produced very intense wines with an open and approachable expression. Medium weighted with fine grainy tannins and an inviting perfume of black fruit and spice make this young wine very interesting. It will mature very well if you can hang onto a few bottles for 5 to 8 years.

The Beaumont family story is one where fact, fable and fantasy merge – a story where wine, food and family are always at the centre of the narrative – a story in which a family filled with big-hearted and impassionate people strive to capture the essence of happiness, be it in the cellar, in the kitchen or sitting on a farmhouse stoep. It is a story that applauds the efforts of the everyday and the memories that are made through generous sharing of the spoils of the land.
