Beaumont Family Wines, Hope Marguerite 2021
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.
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.
