Beaumont Family Wines, Hope Marguerite 2020

(2 reviews)

A true benchmark for South African Chenin. Made from two blocks planted in 1974 and 1978.

“Leesy, focused and effortlessly poised, with a hint of spicy new wood, pear and patisserie flavours and thrilling acidity, minerality and palate length” Tim Atkin

Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. This wine does her proud.

Description

WINEMAKER’S NOTE

Seafood, scallops in particular, and any beautifully spicy Asian dish. Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. We have produced this Chenin to reflect the pure character of the grape and the individual philosophy of Beaumont Family wines.

Our first vintage of the Hope Marguerite was produced in 1997 and at that time there were only two other Chenin Blancs in South Africa produced in this style.

Only fruit selected from our two oldest Chenin Blanc vineyards, planted in ‘74 and ‘78, are used for this wine. Barrel fermentation takes place in 400L French oak using only natural yeasts. Malolactic fermentation occurs in certain vintages. The wine is kept on its gross lees for 10 months with regular batonage, giving it a richer and fuller palate.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

A normal wet cold winter allowed for good rest for the vines. Healthy ripening season produced perfect grapes resulting in fantastic juice.

AGEING POTENTIAL

Fresh, clean and powerful fruit which will develop beautifully over the next 5-15 years in bottle.

    “Very simple winemaking,” says Sebastian Beaumont modestly. But he’s right in a way. Less is more when the sites are as good as these two blocks, planted in 1974 and 1978. Leesy, focused and effortlessly poised, with a hint of spicy new wood, pear and patisserie flavours and thrilling acidity, minerality and palate length. 2021-26”

    “Cape benchmark chenin, 2020 richer, bolder than its sibling. Wild ferment/oaked 11 months, barley sugar & melon preserve, everything working seamlessly to impress, seduce. Latent power despite the trim figure (12.5% alcohol)”
