Beaumont Family Wines - Hope Marguerite - Chenin Blanc
Overview: Beaumont is a family owned and managed farm situated in the heart of the town of Bot River ("Botter Rivier") in the Overberg. The farm, home to the region’s oldest wine cellar, was originally established in the 1700’s by the Dutch East India Company. In the 1940’s the wine business was initially started but wine production was discontinued in the late 1960’s. Jayne and Raoul Beaumont bought the farm Compagnes Drift in 1974 and set about replanting the vineyards. However, the legacy of creating wines in the farm cellar under the family name was only initiated years later. Since then the wines have born the crest of the Beaumont family. Originally found in the family signet ring, the roaring lion represents honour and courage and serves as a symbolic message of balance – a quality synonymous with our wines. The crest pays homage to our roots and represents the connection between farmland and family. It finds expression in our brand and personifies a place of passion, simplicity and charm. Our story is one where family, fervor and farming merge - where wine, food and people are always at the centre of the narrative. This is our story and we invite you to be part of it.
Tasting Notes: A careful selection of the most characterful fruit from our oldest vineyards at Beaumont, left to ferment naturally with minimum intervention, matured in mostly old 400L French oak, of which 15% was new wood. A wine with additional residual sugar. Adding weight and fruit to the palate and producing a beautifully mouth filling vintage.
