First released in 1996, this old vine Chenin is widely regarded as the benchmark of its style in the Cape. Rich and full on, we’ve lost count now of how many times Sebastian Beaumont has been awarded a Platter Five Star for this wine.”

Origin

Fruit is selected from the estate's oldest Chenin Blanc vines, first planted by Raoul in the 1970's. These original vines still produce grapes for Beaumont's flagship wines, Hope Marguerite and the 'Vitruvian' red blend.

Grape Variety

100% Chenin Blanc.

Fermented in 400 litre French oak barrels using only natural yeasts, with no malolactic fermentation to preserve freshness. Aged on its lees for 10 months with regular batonage to develop a richer and fuller palate.

Alcohol Percentage

13.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 5 years.

Producer

Beaumont began when Jayne and her late husband, Raoul, liberated themselves from the co-operative system in 1994 and refurbished the old farm at Compagnes Drift, an outpost for the Dutch East India Company in the 18th Century. Today, the cellar is under the tenure of their son, Sebastian. Beaumont is most highly regarded for their production of Chenin Blanc, for which there are three expressions. The first is raised in concrete and stainless steel tank, charmingly rustic yet serious and durable. The second included a very limited release of a Noble Late Harvest Chenin called Goutte d’Or - just 4 barrels produced in the 2015 vintage! Finally, the Hope Marguerite (named after Sebastian’s grandmother) is considered the estate's flagship white wine; first released in 1996 it continues to be adorned with Platter stars!

Food Match

Great with any mildly spiced Asian dish or a fuller bodied white meat and sauce accompaniment.
