Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. They have produced this Chenin to reflect the pure character of the grape and the individual philosophy of Beaumont wines. Their very first vintage of the Hope Marguerite was produced in 1997.

Only fruit selected from their 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. No malo lactic fermentation takes place in order to retain as much natural freshness. The wine is kept on its gross lees for 10 months with regular batonage, giving it a richer and fuller palate.

Tasting notes:
'Year in year out, this is one of the best and most complex Chenins in South Africa. Made from very small berries (but with no botrytis) in 2017, it’s a leesy, naturally fermented delight showing old vine concentration and remarkable palate length. 2019-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

‘A Cape benchmark chenin - 2018 is the 8th vintage to get our maximum 5 stars. From 40+ year old vines, unfailingly elegant & delicious. Shows taut balance between creamy, nutty richness & racy acidity, layered with tropical fruit. Naturally barrel-fermented & aged 11 months in mostly old 400L French oak.’ – Platter’s Guide 2020, 5* (95/100)

Viticulture:
Extremely dry conditions through the season. Healthy grapes with very small berries. The two oldest vineyards handling the tough conditions beautifully.

Vinification:
A careful selection of the most characterful fruit from our oldest vineyard at Beaumont, left to ferment naturally with minimum intervention, matured in mostly old 400L French oak, of which 15% was new wood. This wine remained on its gross lees for 10 months in 400L barrels with regular batonage. Final blending and bottling in early 2019.
