Awards/Reviews

5 Stars 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Cape benchmark chenin, 20 (96 pts) richer, bolder than its sibling. Wild ferment/oaked 11 months, barley sugar & melon preserve, everything working seamlessly to impress, seduce. Latent power despite the trim figure (12.5% alcohol).

Winemaker Notes

Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. Beaumont’s first vintage of the Hope
Marguerite was produced in 1997 and at that time, there were only two other Chenin Blancs in South Africa produced in this style.

Only fruit selected from Beaumont’s two 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. Malo lactic fermentation occurs in certain vintages. The wine is kept on its gross lees for 10 months with regular batonage, giving it a richer and fuller palate.

Hope Marguerite is seen as one of the benchmark barrel matured styles of Chenin in the country.

Fresh, clean and powerful fruit which will develop beautifully over the next 5 – 15 years in bottle
