The farm 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. After generations of partnering with nature, the land now offers some of the finest vineyards in the area. Together with a non-conformist approach to winemaking, these vines produce notably balanced, classical and artisanal wines. Sebastian Beaumont is in charge of both the vineyards and winemaking.
The Goutte D’Or has gone back to being 100% Chenin Blanc Noble Late Harvest. But still in the traditionally elegant, fresh and balanced style that has become a signature of our sweet wine. Fermented and matured in stainless a stainless steel tank for 5 months.
An excellent ending to an evening, or perhaps even served over some vanilla ice cream.
