Beaumont Family Winery, “Hope Marguerite”, Bot River Valley, Chenin Blanc, 2019


Wine Magazine, S.A 93pts: This is the famed Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc from Beaumont in Bot River. The nose shows pear, peach, citrus and apple with some dried herbs and a little yeasty complexity in the background. The palate possesses a good core of fruit plus bright acidity while the finish is long and pithy. Currently, it comes across as rather tightly wound and it will be interesting to see how that extra RS manifests itself in years to come.

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. Malo lactic 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.
The 2020 vintage is a classic expression of

Beaumont is situated on the western side of the Bot River Valley, 8 km from the ocean. The property surrounds the town of Bot River. The vineyards are planted on ancient shale soils with beautiful gravely top soils that have a heavy clay base and are great for moisture storage. These low vigor soils have been producing wines for the past 80 – 100 yrs. The property dates back to the 1750’s when it was primarily an outpost farm for travelers to rest and replenish stocks. At the turn of the previous century the first wines were made in what is now a historical winery using modern wine making techniques to produce elegant, complex wines that capture the essence of the property and the region.
