Origin

Fruit is selected from the estate’s oldest Chenin Blanc vines, from the Bot River, Overberg, South Africa – first planted by Raoul in the 1970’s. These original vines still produce grapes for Beaumont’s flagship wines, Hope Marguerite and the ‘Vitruvian’ red blend.

Producer

Beaumont began when Jayne and her late husband, Raoul, liberated themselves from the co-operative system in 1994 and refurbished the old farm at Compagnes Drift, an outpost for the Dutch East India Company in the 18th Century. Today, the cellar is under the tenure of their son, Sebastian. Beaumont is most highly regarded for their production of Chenin Blanc, for which there are three expressions. The first is raised in concrete and stainless steel tank, charmingly rustic yet serious and durable. The second included a very limited release of a Noble Late Harvest Chenin called Goutte d’Or – just 4 barrels produced in the 2015 vintage! Finally, the Hope Marguerite (named after Sebastian’s grandmother) is considered the estate’s flagship white wine; first released in 1996 it continues to be adorned with Platter stars!
