5 Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
A Cape benchmark chenin – 18 (95 pts) is the 8th vintage to get our maximum 5 stars. From 40+ year old vines, unfailingly elegant & delicious. Show’s taut balance between creamy, nutty richness & racy acidity, layered with tropical fruit. Naturally barrel-fermented & aged 11 months in mostly old, 400l French oak.

"I like the leaner, more elegant Hope Marguerites," says Sebastian Beaumont, and 2018 is certainly one of them, with restrained alcohol and wonderful precision. Barrel-fermented in 20% new wood, this has the concentration and texture of its old vine source and flavours of quince and apple tart. The oak and lees are brilliantly judged. 2020-26.
93 pts Wine & Spirits
Some of the chenin vines that contribute to this wine date to the founding of this estate in 1974; Sebastian Beaumont now manages the family’s 84 acres of vineyards on the western side of the Bot River valley, five miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The wine has a pure chenin character, with notes of bruised apple, juicy blood orange and apricot. Grown in shale soils, it offers a flinty, reductive note, holding tart, crisp and clean.



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. 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.
