Named after Hope Marguerite Beaumont, a woman with character, elegance and a love for wine. This Chenin Blanc was produced to reflect the pure character of the grape and the individual philosophy of Beaumont wines. Only fruit selected from the oldest Chenin Blanc vineyards on the farm, planted in 1974 and ‘78, are used for this wine. Barrel fermentation takes place in 400L French oak using only natural yeasts. No malo lactic fermentation takes place in order to retain as much natural freshness. The wine is kept on its gross lees for 10 months with regular batonage, giving it a richer and fuller palate.
