"Year in, year out, this exceptional Chenin Blanc vineyard delivers the goods.... it produces a wine with wonderful energy, poise and focus. Lime, pear and green apple flavors are complemented by understated oak and a tangy, mouth-watering finish."

95 points Decanter
"This cuvée was first made in 1997 from two vineyards planted in 1974 and 1978 which are now both certified as heritage vineyards. 2021 saw nearoptimal growing and ripening conditions for Beaumont. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts in 400L oak barrels with partial malolactic fermentation before ageing for 10 months on lees. Greg Sherwood MW: A sweet-fruited bouquet, notes of peach bellinis, melon and apple. Rich and tangy with sweet/sour acidity, glycerol fruit concentration and a long and slightly honeyed melon syrup finish. Beverley Blanning MW: Acacia honey and toast nose. Smooth, confident fruit, lovely ripeness and suppleness, stylish and easily approachable. Long, rich, honeyed finish. Very accomplished. Roger Jones: Fresh nectarines, baked apple, pineapple cubes, ginger and bourbon spice. Great depth and complexity. A gentle but aromatic finish leaves you wanting more."

"Hazelnuts and real interest on the nose. Then, on the palate, the same tension as Alheit. Really pure and exciting. Soars above the earth somehow. Extremely long. Great stuff! No hurry to drink. 17.5/20 points."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Beaumont is a family-run farm and winery situated in the Overberg Village of Bot River. The farm is home to the region’s oldest wine cellar and is steeped in history dating back to the 1700’s. In 2004, Sebastian Beaumont, having honed his skills working in the vine-yards took over the reins in the cellar and has continued to build the Beaumont reputation. Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. Beaumont’s first vintage of the Hope Marguerite was produced in 1997 and at that time, there were only two other Chenin Blancs in South Africa produced in this style. From Beaumont’s two oldest Chenin Blanc vineyards, planted in ‘74 and ‘87 on a combination of gravel, sand and shale. These vineyards are registered as single vineyards and the wine is certified as a Heritage Vineyard wine.
