Our Chenin Blanc was made from 84% Bot River fruit and 16 % from the Overberg making the wine of Origin for the vintage Cape South Coast. This is the first time that we had to source from outside the Bot River ward. Yields were very low due to the drought. This vintage is a beautiful expression of the grape capturing the full flavour and potential that our terroir has to offer. It is a delicious example of cooler climate Chenin Blanc fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks. Dry, fresh and delicious!
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.
