Beaumont, Mourvèdre 750ml 2015South Africa, Overberg
His wine making approach is instinctive, believing that wine is made in the vineyards and minimal intervention is needed. Ancient, low-yielding Chenin Blanc and Pinotage vines are honoured in the process, allowing the wines to be a true reflection of the land and vineyards. He has a hands-on approach to wine-making, using old-cellar techniques like natural yeasts and old open concrete ‘’kuipe’’ fermenters. His non-conformist approach embraces the old but also creatively uses modern winemaking techniques to produce limited quantities of specialised, characterful and authentic wines.
Beaumont produced the bottled the first single varietal Mourvedre in the country in 1999 and since then they have produced limited amounts of this fascinating grape every year.
'The 2014 Mourvèdre was matured for 24 months in oak (8% new) and then 12 months in bottle before release. The lifted, spearmint-scented bouquet feels a little monotone at the moment and needs to muster more complexity. The palate is sweet on the entry, featuring raspberry preserve, boysenberry, sea salt and a touch of spice. This is well balanced and shows more refinement on the finish than the nose suggests. Give it another year in bottle, as it may well improve.' – Neal Martin, Vinous.com, 88/100
