Beaumont Family Wines, Hope Marguerite 2021

(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

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. Both these vineyards are registered as single vineyards and the wine is certified as a Heritage Vineyard wine. This is part of the Old Vine Project that aims to preserve heritage vineyards on the farm.

RATINGS & REVIEWS | Our Flagship white wine has received nine Platter 5 star ratings in the past. Hope is seen as one of the benchmark barrel-matured styles of Chenin in the country. It also received 95 points in Tim Atkin reviews and in the Wine Enthusiast.

    “Year in, year out, this exceptional Chenin Blanc vineyard delivers the goods. Planted in 1974 and 1987 on a combination of gravel, sand and shale, it produces a wine with wonderful energy, poise and focus. Lime, pear and green apple flavours are complemented by understated oak and a tangy, mouth-watering finish. 2023-30”

    “Cape benchmark chenin, from low-yield single-vineyard planted in 1974-1978. No change in the making, wild ferment, 10 months older French barrels, nor the result. 2021 shows chenin’s capability in the right hands: barley sugar & baked apple/melon preserve perfume & flavours, a seductive richness despite its sleekness. Vibrantly fresh, built to age, like 2020 (5 stars, 96pts)”
