4 Stars 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Unwooded 21 (89 pts) captures the variety’s essence, crunchy apple & winter melon, sleek & vibrantly fresh. Reflects cool growing conditions, expert crafting.
The 2021 vintage produced another year of great healthy fruit. Good cold winter with lots of rain followed through to the summer. Cool conditions persisted right through the ripening time, allowing the fruit to develop lots of intensity on the vine.
Made from 100% Beaumont, Bot River fruit, this wine is reminiscent of the 2011 vintage. This vintage produced plenty fruit with good concentration and a very long and slow fermentation. Since the first vintage in 1996, Beaumont has committed to making a style of Chenin that captures the purity of the grape.
