5 Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Serial accolades for scintillating rendition of chenin ex 40 year old vines 17 (95 pts) retains accustomed classic style, layered with tropical fruit, fleshed out by creamy oatmeal from deft oaking (year in 20% new barrels), yet wonderfully restrained & elegant.
95 pts Tim Atkin MW 2018
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.

The 2017 Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc was fermented and matured in oak, 15% new. It offers attractive orange peel, dried honey and white chocolate scents that open with aeration, and the prudent use of oak is welcome. The palate is well balanced with fine weight; touches of orange pith and nectarine lace together toward the quite refined and persistent finish. This is a classy Chenin Blanc.
90 pts James Suckling June 2018
The dried fruits come through clearly with sliced pineapples and pears. Full-bodied, layered and flavorful. A delicious finish. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes

Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. We have produced this Chenin to reflect the pure character of the grape and the individual philosophy of Beaumont wines. Our very first vintage of the Hope Marguerite was produced in 1997. Only fruit selected from our oldest Chenin Blanc vineyards, planted in ‘74 and ‘78, are used for this wine.
One of the greatest vintages in the last 5 years. Healthy pure fruit that are full of flavour. A careful selection of the most characterful fruit our oldest vineyard at Beaumont, left to ferment naturally with minimum intervention, matured in mostly old 400L French oak, of which15% was new wood. This wine remained on its gross lees for 10 months in 400L barrels with regular batonage. Fresh, clean and powerful fruit which will develop beautifully over the next 5 – 10 years in bottle.
