Beaumont Hope Marguerite 2023

R485.00

Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. The first vintage was produced in 1997, and at that time there were only two other Chenin Blancs in this style produced in South Africa.

A careful selection of the most characterful fruit from their oldest vineyards at Beaumont, planted in 1974 and 1978.

Complete natural fermentation with minimal intervention in old 400L French oak. It spent a further 10 months on the lees after fermentation before blending and bottling.

A fresh, clean yet powerful wine with upfront fruit expression. Older vintages have shown the remarkable age ability of this wine, therefore we suggest putting a few bottles away for a few years.

Description

Sebastian and his team are fortunate to have 40 years of viticulture experience on this unique farm.

His winemaking approach is instinctive, believing that wine is made in the vineyards and minimal intervention is needed. Ancient, low-yielding Chenin Blanc and Pinotage vines are honoured in the process, allowing the wines to be a true reflection of the land and vineyards. He has a hands-on approach to wine-making, using old-cellar techniques like natural yeasts and old open concrete ‘’kuipe’’ fermenters.

His non-conformist approach embraces the old but also creatively uses modern winemaking techniques to produce limited quantities of specialised, characterful and authentic wines.
