This is one of the highly-rated wines on Tim Atkin MW's 2020 South Africa Special Report

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:
'Cape benchmark chenin, naturally barrel-fermented, 11 months in mostly old oak. 2019 built to last, with higher sugar than usual (8.3 g/l) yet gracefully poised as ever, with fresh acidity & dense, creamy, yeasty mouthfeel balanced around core of ripe stonefruit.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'If the definition of a great vineyard is that it consistently produces superb wine then Hope Marguerite definitely qualifies. Made with fruit from 40-year-old vines and older, it's a classy, poised, naturally fermented delight, with green apple and pear tart flavours, racy acidity, some brioche and patisserie and a long, crunchy finish. 2021-29' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'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.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100
